How to check or upgrade version name and version code of the application in Android studio
First things first, coming to Android development eclipse era has ended, so I don’t discuss about Eclipse tool.
Coming to Android studio you can check the present application version name and code in two ways
Step 1 :
manifest file ->manifest tag ->
there will be direct attributes
Go to build gradle (Module app)
In build gradle you will see defaultConfig segment in which you can find the attributes as
Now that we knew how check the version name and code
Let’s dig deep
After publishing your app in play store you should be giving updates for users, in order to upload the app to play store as an update to existing you should genearte APK with
- Same release keystore as done before
- You should increase VERSION NAME AND CODE
You should not decrease version name or code while uploading APK to play store
In order to increase or change versionCode and versionName you first update them in manifest top tag as discussed before and then in gradle file too ,after that sync the project.
If there are no tags(versionName & versionCode) in manifest file don’t worry those are not mandatory.
That’s all here we go the app with new new version.
