Now that you’ve previewed your app, move on to test before it goes live to ensure the look, feel, and functionality are ready for launch. To test your app, you will use Google Play Alpha, Google’s testing tool for app owners.
Create Testers in Google
Navigate to All Applications. Select your app.
Navigate to App Releases under Release Management.
Select Manage next to Alpha under Closed Track.
Select Manage testers.
Select Create List. Create a list with your testers by adding their email addresses. The tester must be signed into the account on their Android device in order to download the test version of the app.
