By linking Firebase and Google Play, you get a richer view into your Android app's health. For example, in the Crashlytics dashboard, you can filter your app's crash reports by Google Play track, which allows you to better focus your dashboard on specific builds.
Set up your app in Google Play
To take advantage of the Crashlytics integration with Google Play, make sure that your app meets the following requirements:
Your app in Google Play and your Firebase Android App are both registered using the same package name.
Your app in Google Play is set up on the app dashboard and is distributed to one of the Google Play tracks (Internal testing, Closed testing, Open testing, or Production).
Link to Google Play
Link your Firebase Android App to your Google Play developer account:
In the Firebase console, go to
, and then select the Integrations tab. > Project settings
On the Google Play card, click Link.
If you already have links to Google Play, click Manage instead.
Follow the on-screen instructions to enable the Crashlytics integration and select which Firebase Android Apps to link to Google Play.

Filter events by Google Play track
You can filter your app's crash reports by Google Play track directly in the Crashlytics dashboard. This allows you to better focus your dashboard on specific builds.
Here's how to filter by Play track:
At the top of the Crashlytics dashboard in the Firebase console, select your desired Firebase Android App.
In the top-level
menu, click Versions, and then select the Google Play track for which you want to view Crashlytics events. You can select more than one track. Filter
All the data in the Crashlytics dashboard (crash-free statistics, trends, and issues) will now be specific to the selected Play track(s) and version(s).

Customize your crash report setup by adding opt-in reporting, logs, keys, and tracking of non-fatal errors.
Now that you have a link to Google Play, take advantage of other integrations:
- Access your in-app purchase and subscription revenue data from Google Play in both Firebase and Google Analytics.
- Upload an Android app bundle to App Distribution so that Google Play can generate an APK that's optimized for your tester's device configuration.
