What's new? User management and permissions
We’ve updated the new team-member management area with better, more granular controls. There’s clearer differentiation between global and app-level permissions, and we’ve added full user search and bulk-edit capabilities to make managing your teams easier.
More granular permission control with detailed definitions
Updated team management functionality, including search, filter, and bulk edit capabilities
Clear differentiation between account and app-level permissions
New permissions and definitions
There are now additional permissions that allow users to take actions that won’t make changes to the app in the Play Store. You’ll also see more detailed definitions that map to specific features or actions in the Play Console. Written in collaboration with developers, new permission names and descriptions are clearer, so you can understand what you are — and aren’t — allowing invited users to do.
Classic Play Console definition of Reply to reviews: Permits users to respond to reviews and flag abusive reviews.
Redesigned Play Console definition of Reply to reviews:Reply to reviews on Google Play, report inappropriate reviews, and change the contact information used in suggested replies. Users without this permission can still view ratings and reviews, but can’t reply to them.
Understanding Play Console permissions
To make managing your team easier, especially as you scale and grow your app or game business, we’ve updated the Users and Permissions page to support search, filter, and bulk edit capabilities.
Filter users by Apps, Status, Account permissions or App permissions
Search users by name or email address
Bulk update expiry dates for access with Manage users
Bulk remove users with Manage users
Quickly view status and expiration dates
Clear distinction between account and app-level permissions
Account permissions grant permissions for all apps in the developer account, including new and future apps added after permissions are given. Some account permissions give additional access.
App permissions grant permissions for 1 or more apps.
These permissions have been separated into tabs to make it easier to quickly differentiate.
