Can you delete a project that is uploaded to the play store, and replace it with another one with the same package name? [duplicate]


classmates, I have a small question. I have an application in the store play store, but due to the new update of android studio I came up with the idea of doing another project with the same name of the package and the same keyStore to see if I accept the updates. Is it possible? I will not have any problem? or will there be other additional things to do besides the name of the package ?. Help for plisss porfa

Do not delete the app from the store. To update in the store you should only generate a new signed apk with a new version.

To upload the application version, just open app/build.gradle. and modify versionCode and versionName example:


versionCode 1 
versionName "1.0"


versionCode 101 
versionName "1.0.1"

If the version is not updated, the store will not allow uploading a new apk with an existing version.
