Version Name (shown in play store)

#1

How can we set the Version Name (the number showing in the Google Play Store - https://developer.android.com/studio/publish/versioning.html) in Expo?
Can’t see anything appropriate here: https://docs.expo.io/versions/v17.0.0/guides/configuration.html

With Apple you set the user facing version number in iTunes Connect, but I believe with Android you do in the Gradle build files.

Thanks.

hello! you can use the versionCode config option: https://docs.expo.io/versions/v18.0.0/guides/configuration.html#versioncode

Thanks…VersionCode doesn’t seem to update the number seen in the front-end (user facing) of the Google Play store - which is the VersionName - https://developer.android.com/studio/publish/versioning.html (VersionName can have decimals)
