Google Play allows developers to publish beta versions of their apps, made available to testers who opt-in to the program.
Google’s beta testing features are available within the Play Console. You can test your app with specific groups or open your test to Google Play users. Available testing options include Internal testing, available only to people inside of your organization; Closed testing, available to larger set of testers but not publicly available; and Open testing, which will make pre-release versions of your app available on the the Google Play store.
Use Google Play’s Beta feature to test Android versions of your Ionic apps with in-house QA, testers and other stakeholders, or publicly within the Google Play store.
