What is internal testing?

Internal testing is like a trial run for your streaming app. You let a small group of trusted people within your team use it before releasing it to the public. This helps you catch and fix any issues early, making sure your app works smoothly when it's in the hands of your viewers.

How to add internal test users for your Android/Android TV app?

Create an email list of your testers:

  1. Open Play Console and select the app that has to be tested, then go to the Internal testing page (Testing > Internal testing).

  2. Select the Testers tab.

  3. Under "Testers," select Create email list.

  4. Enter a list name. You can use the same list for future tests on any of your apps.

  5. Add email addresses separated by commas or click Upload CSV file. If you use a .CSV file, put each email address on its own line without any commas.

    • Note: If you upload a .CSV file, it will overwrite any email addresses you've added.

  6. Select Save changes, then Create.

Add testers

  1. Open Play Console and select the app that has to be tested, then go to the Internal testing page (Testing > Internal testing).

  2. Select the Testers tab.

  3. In the "Testers" table, select the user lists you want to test your release.

  4. Provide a feedback URL or email address to collect feedback from testers. Your app's feedback channel will be shown to users on your tester opt-in page.

  5. Copy the shareable link to share the release with testers.

  6. Select Save changes.
