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
On the Play Console, you can have multiple users with different roles work together on your company’s apps and games. As an account owner, you can add other users and manage their permissions. You have complete and flexible control over who can access features and data for your apps within the Play Console.
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.
Adding users and managing user permissions
When you add someone as a user or admin, they can sign in to the Play Console with their own information and access different features on the Play Console. You and your admins can use permissions to determine what information they can see and edit on the Play Console.
