Once you’ve previewed and tested your mobile app, you’re ready for launch! Follow a few more steps for approval and submission to the Google Play app store.

Follow these steps in Channels under Google Play to submit your app build and set it live:

Get Started

Create and access your Google Play Developer account; learn more here.


On average, submission to approval by Google typically takes 5 business days. Factors such as app rejection can delay up to a few weeks or longer.

When you’re ready for your app to be submitted to the Google Play App Store, select Submit in the Channels section of the dashboard.

NOTE: Make sure you’ve uploaded screenshots and entered all metadata in the setup of the Google Play App Store (Channels).

Pending Approval

The status of your app will change to Pending when successfully submitted to Google. Expect a wait of up to 48 hours to change to Pending in the dashboard.

NOTE: Your Google Play account will receive email confirmation from Google throughout the submission process.

You will receive an email confirming submission from both MAZ and Google. Expect a few days to a few weeks for approval by Google.


You will receive notification from Google that your app is approved and ready to launch! It is now on Developer Hold status. The final step for setting your app live after approval is to log into your Google Play account to either 1) set your app live immediately or 2) set a go live date.
