Review your app's compatible devices

Using your Google Play Developer Console, you can review a list of compatible devices for each of your apps. Your app’s device compatibility list is based on your app’s manifest file settings and is refreshed periodically.

For example, if your APK’s manifest file specifies a large screen size, your supported list will include devices with the required screen sizes that can download your app on Google Play.

Here’s how to find your app’s device compatibility list:

  1. Sign in to your Google Play Developer Console.
  2. On your All applications All Applications page, select an app.
  3. On the left menu, click APK.
  4. Under “Supported devices,” click See list.
    • Devices are sorted by manufacturer. To see all compatible devices from a manufacturer, click Show All.

You can search for individual devices by manufacturer, design name, or public device name (example: Nexus 6). Also, you can use the drop-down to see a list of supported and unsupported devices.

Note: Countries listed on your app’s Pricing & Distribution page don’t affect your app’s list of supported devices.

Manually exclude devices

You can exclude your app from being available to individual devices on Google Play by adding devices to your app’s “Excluded devices” list. By manually excluding devices with known compatibility issues, you can help provide a better experience for your users.

Note: The excluded devices list is based on your most recently uploaded APK draft file. If you upload a new APK, the list will change. To help ensure the widest availability of your app, review your supported and excluded devices lists regularly.

Here’s how to manually exclude devices:

  1. Sign in to your Google Play Developer Console.
  2. On your All applications All Applications page, select an app.
  3. On the left menu, click APK.
  4. On your app’s “Production” tab, under “Exclude devices” click Manage excluded devices.
  5. Using the drop-down, select All devices.
  6. Search for the device (by manufacturer, design name, or public device name) you want to exclude.
  7. Click the switch to red exclude a device.
  8. Near the bottom of the list, click Save.
