Unoptimised APK

  1. last year
    1. I am exporting my book to Google Play and I created an internal test;
    2. After uploading the APK file (27MB) and zip file (220MB) correctly, I pressed “Review”;
    3. The following warning message came out:

    “Unoptimised APK
    This APK results in unused code and resources being sent to users. Your app could be smaller if you used the Android App Bundle. By not optimising your app for device configurations, your app is larger to download and install on users' devices than it needs to be. Larger apps see lower installation success rates and take up storage on users' devices.
    Use the Android App Bundle to automatically optimise for device configurations, or manage it yourself with multiple APKs.”

    Is it related with the zip file size? I have used 10+ soundtracks and every page is narrated, so even an optimized .xpub file is about 190MB.

    Any idea? Thanks.

    Hello Terry,
    the "Unoptimized APK" is a warning only, you can go on and publish your app safely.
