Google play console - package name

Hey there friends,

When I was trying to upload my app in Google play console (AAB build) for internal test, I got this message: “You need to use a different package name because ‘com.appname.android’ already exists in Google Play.” Does anyone know what might be the issue?

I tried creating a new project on firebase + new app on Console with a different package name and still get the same error.

Thanks for your help!

Case closed, thx ))))

Hi @Lyasya,

Welcome to the community :partying_face:

I guess you fixed it by contacting Adalo Support? ( I think it may because AAB )

Just asking that if another maker faced the same issue this will help him!

Thank you

Hi Dilon,

Yes, I got feedback from the support team, thank you!

The thing is that when you register your package name at Firebase it is not telling you if it is already taken or not. Sometimes, it might need several trials before you come up with the free package name.
I searched for some ways to check it before registering the name, however, I didn’t find any workaround so far.

My solution was I tried 3 different package names and was successful with the last one.
It is only a slight headache as you have to go through the procedure every time, as every time you have to create a different project (Firebase / Google play console / new Adalo build, etc.)
That’s life :slight_smile:

I don’t think it makes a difference if it is APK or AAB, I think it is really just the name. However, I’m new to Adalo, maybe there are other differences.

I think for other makers who are using tutorials for publishing apps a hint to try out a different package name would be of some help!

Hope this info was helpful!
Cheers
