From August 2021, Google requires you to upload an AAB file, however, if you have previously published your app then you can still upload the APK files for your ‘release’ builds.


Create an Android Release App build

  1. Log into your WordPress admin
  2. Navigate to BuddyBoss App > Build
  3. Click on Request Build
  4. Select Android as the Platform, and Release App as the Build Type
  5. Click Next Step, and then Send Build Request
  6. Once the build completes, go to Build History
  7. Click the button on the completed release build to Download AAB File
  8. Save this file somewhere safe.

Note: The .AAB file is only available on the Release App build.


If you are unable to see the option to download the .AAB file for the release build, a possible reason is that your BuddyBoss App plugin is outdated.
