MAD Skills — Become an Android App Bundle expert
Posted by Ben Weiss, Developer Relations Engineer
The Android App Bundle series of Modern Android Development has just concluded. We finished off with a live Q&A session. I was joined by Chet Haase, Wojtek Kaliciński, and Iurii Makhno to go over bundles of questions from the #AskAndroid hashtag on Twitter as well as from the chat during the live stream.
But let’s rewind for a moment and take it from the top.
Introduction to Android App Bundles
In the inaugural episode Wojtek sets the tone for this series by talking about why app bundles matter to you and your app.
Everything to know about Play App Signing
In this episode you learn how to opt into Play App Signing by joining Wojtek on a journey through the Play Console. After watching this video you will have learned what options are available to you when opting into Play App Signing.
Building your first app bundle
Now it’s time to learn how to build and upload your first Android App Bundle.
In this episode, I take you through the process of building a bundle using Android Studio and the command line interface.
Instead, you can read the write up of this episode.
Accompanying this episode, take a look at the app bundles documentation.
Configuring your app for Play Feature Delivery
Here you’ll learn about delivery options. From install time, to conditional delivery to on demand delivery. I cover it all. And we’ll take an excursion through the sample on GitHub.
Testing app bundles with bundletool and the Play Console
Have you wondered about how you can test your app bundle? No more wondering. Wojtek takes you through testing your app bundle locally and with the Play Console.
And, if you want to download bundletool, here is where to find it.
Big savings with Android App Bundles
Android GDE Angélica Oliveira tells us about the process and the impressive size savings her company saw when switching over to Android App Bundles.
Live Q&A session
We asked for your questions on Twitter. You replied, using the #AskAndroid hashtag.
And you continued asking questions during the live Q&A session.
Chet then got Wojtek, Iurii and myself in front of the camera for a live Q&A to answer your questions.
Reminder: App bundles will be mandatory for new apps from August 2021
