Google Play Overview


With buddybuild, you can deploy builds directly to Google Play! All you need to do is create a Private Key from the Google Play Developer Console (.JSON file) and upload that to buddybuild. From there, you can select which variant to upload, which track to upload to, and which buddybuild SDK features you'd like to include in the build you're uploading.
