Hello, when submitting the exp build:android generated .APK file to Google Play Store, do we need to select CONTINUE Google Play App Signing or do we need to select OPT-OUT?

Hi @pluss thanks for using Expo!

This is entirely up to you, whether or not you want to reuse an existing key or the one you generated

Please read these docs for more information. https://docs.expo.io/versions/latest/guides/building-standalone-apps.html#if-you-choose-to-build-for-android

:wave:

I can’t quite connect the dots here: Does clicking “continue” mean we need to use our own keystore instead of using the one managed by expo?

Thanks!

If I choose " 1) Let Expo handle the process!" Should I opt-out from the Google play key Signing ?

When I encountered this screen I chose Continue and Google accepted my app.

So just to confirm, if you use “exp build:android” and use an Expo-generated/Expo-managed keystore, you should select “CONTINUE” in the screenshot posted in the original post of this thread?
