android – Changing version code in AndroidManifest not Working

Posted by: admin June 15, 2020 Leave a comment


I tried to update my app in the playstore, to do that I changed my versioncode from 1 to 2:

<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"

When I’m uploading the app the developerconsole is saying, that I still use the version code 1 and there is no human support for German developer, so I hope someone is able to help me.

How to&Answers:

The version code and name get overridden by values in your build.gradle file. So edit your build.gradle and rebuild.


Typically, you would release the first version of your application with versionCode set to 1, then monotonically increase the value with each release, regardless whether the release constitutes a major or minor release.

So, maybe the problem because you didn’t set version code in manifest file in the first release.


Could you please give me the full message google play have said? And what to buttons appeard when that message appeared.

I remember that a similar message faced me, and maybe there was a continue button.


Also, if you’re in Android Studio, don’t forget:
Build > Generate Signed APK...
