There are a number of things that you can include with your application while publishing your android app. This includes

Store Graphics

These are the promotional graphics that are used in the store to promote your Android app. Make sure you make the most attractive and most illustrative graphics for your Android app. The Google play store allows for the following three images.

  • 512 x 512 px
  • 32-bit PNG
  • Max size 1024KB
  • Transparency allowed

Apart from this you need to set some other parameters as well. Like

  • Size- the size of the app should not exceed 50 Mb
