Finally, we’ll cover how to publish your application to the Google Play store.
To begin, open up the Android SDK Manager by going to Tools > Android SDK Manager. You will see a list of installed packages, as well as any available updates. Click “Update All” to download and install the latest version of the Android SDK.
Next, go back to the main menu and click “SDK Tools”. Then select “Android SDK Build-Tools 23.0.2”.
Finally, click “OK” to close out the dialog box. Now, you should see a new option under “Extras” called “Google Inc.: Google APIs (rev 21)”. Select this package and click OK.
Now, you need to build your app. Go back to the main menu again and choose “Build > Make Project”. Choose “Create New Apk…” and then follow the prompts. Once complete, you will find your newly generated.apk file inside the folder where you ran the command.
