Automate publishing release notes to the Google Play Store

On every app release, we publish release notes and it’s a manual process we do every release. We can automate the process by setting up Gradle Play Publisher plugin.

  1. Add languages go to Store Presence -> Store Listing -> and add the Language.
src/[sourceSet]/main/play/release-notes/[language]/default.txt
main/play/release-notes/en-US/default.txt

main/play/release-notes/en-US/default.txt

main/play/release-notes/es-419/default.txt

3. Run Gradle task: ./gradlew publishReleaseBundle

Note: if the Gradle task is not running, run ./gradlew tasks --all, if you can’t see publish task make sure to configure Gradle Play Publisher correctly.

Thanks for reading. I started to publish my daily notes. Let me know if I’m wrong somewhere or if there’s something that could do differently or better. I’m open to your feedback 🙌🏻

Notes: To add more languages to your app “Store Listing” you need to add the language on the Google Play Market settings:

software engineer, read, swim, travel. apps: https://goo.gl/rDuuQw https://goo.gl/15GvfE
