Before the official public release or publishing the first prototype game, I learned about alpha and beta testing in order to gain feedback and fixes needed to improve or correct the game's system. I have some several questions regarding this feature on development feature on Google Play where game developers can publish games:
- Is it okay include the actual ad banner display (via AdMob) on game screen during publishing for alpha or beta testing in Google Play developer section?
- My alpha version is published but why I can't see the published app on Google Play store? I set it for open alpha testing, with only 1,000-1,500 random users.
- After I published for the alpha testing, I tried this link download it via different user but it appeared nothing (even the URL to the APK install download) except the main Gmail account I used as my main source for collecting feedback and as a username to gain access to Google Play Developer. How will ensure to other users to download and test the app during open alpha testing version via invite links?
- Lastly, whatever the APK version no. for alpha would be the same for beta and official release or not?
