How do I add or remove device compatibility to my live app?

Summary:

As your app continues to evolve, so will the number of devices your app supports. Below you will find information on how to add or remove the available devices your app supports in the Amazon Appstore. In these scenarios, we assume that your app is already live in the store. If you need further assistance on how to submit a new app to the store, please see Publishing Android Apps to the Amazon Appstore.

Add Device Compatibility

If you wish to add support for new devices, you must first create a new version of your app. Once you have clicked the “Add Upcoming Version” link, please go to the “Binary File(s)” tab.

Using the Existing Binary

If you would like to add a new device, while using the existing binary:

1. Click the “Edit” button at the bottom of the page.

2. Scroll down to “Device Support” and click the “Edit device support” link next to the device type you would like to add.

3. Select each specific device you would now like to support and click “OK”.

4. Repeat for any other device type on your "Binary File(s)" tab.

5. Click “Save” to save your changes on the "Binary File(s)" tab and complete the rest of your app submission by entering the required information on each tab.

6. When all of the tabs have a green check mark, click the “Submit App” button, at the bottom of the screen, to submit your app for testing and review.

Using a Separate Binary

If you would like to add new devices using an additional binary:

1. Click the “Save and Add a Binary” button, towards the top of the screen of your "Binary File(s)" tab.

2. Scroll to the Binary file section, and upload your new binary file (APK). Make sure to follow the guidelines in Build your APKs and Configure the Android Manifest.

3. Click the “Edit device support” link next to the device type you would like to add. Note: In the “Device Support” section, you will only be able to target the devices that are not already targeted by your existing binary.

4. Select each specific devices you would now like to support and click “OK”

Removing Device Compatibility

1. Click the “Edit device support” link next to the device type you would like to remove.

2. Deselect the devices you would no longer like to support, then click “OK”
