Posted by Dan Lavelle, Head of Learning Operations, Google Play

One year ago, we introduced the Academy for App Success , an e-learning platform to help apps and games businesses who want to grow on Android and Google Play. In that time we've seen tens of thousands of people register for free learning, complete over 50,000 courses, and provide an average course rating of 4.66 out of 5 stars. Thank you to everyone who has spent time learning about best practices, Play Console features, policies and other aspects that are critical to growing your business - we hope to see more of you in the future.

New content and features

Since the debut of Play Academy, we've been working hard to expand our offering to cover the topics you want to learn about. In this time, we have:

  • Created and updated 30+ courses
  • Localized Play Academy in 9 additional languages
  • Developed tailored content for specific markets, such as India, Indonesia and Korea
  • Launched content updates to share the best of GDC and Google I/O
  • Refreshed the visual experience.

We've also been listening to your feedback and have updated Play Academy with content to cover key areas that might interest you:

What's next?

Our goal at Play Academy is to provide you with a free learning resource to optimize your use of Play Console features, learn best practices to apply to your app or game business, and stay on the right side of Google Play policy.

Over the coming year, we will continue to create and update content in these key areas, in addition to investing in new learning formats to complement our interactive e-learning content.

At Google Play, we're looking forward to another great year of learning with you.
