View & restrict your app's compatible devices

After you've uploaded at least one APK to your Google Play Developer Console, you can review a list of compatible devices for your app.

Tip: If you're a user trying to download an app from the Play Store to your device, go to the Google Play Help Center.

Find list of supported devices

  1. Sign in to your Google Play Developer Console.
  2. Select All Applications All applications.
  3. Select an app.
  4. On the left menu, click APK.
  5. Under "Supported devices," click See list.
Sort list by manufacturer, device, or compatibility status

You'll see your device list sorted by manufacturer. You can also review your list in the following ways:

  • To see all compatible devices from a manufacturer, click Show all next to the manufacturer name.
  • To search for individual devices by manufacturer, design name, or public device name (example: Nexus 6), use the search bar at the top of your screen.
  • To filter supported, unsupported, and manually excluded devices, use the drop-down at the top of the list.

App compatibility tips

  • Your app's device compatibility list is based on the 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.
  • Countries listed on your app's Pricing & Distribution page don't affect your app's list of supported devices.

Exclude your app from certain devices

You can exclude your app from being available to individual devices on Google Play. Making this change manually excludes your whole app—you can't exclude individual APKs.

By manually excluding devices with known compatibility issues, you can help provide a better experience for your users.

  1. Sign in to your Google Play Developer Console.
  2. Select All Applications All applications.
  3. Select an app.
  4. On the left menu, click APK and go to your app's "Production" tab.
  5. Under "Excluded devices," click Manage excluded devices.
  6. Using the drop-down, select All devices.
  7. Search for the device you want to exclude (by manufacturer, design name, or public device name).
  8. Next to the device name, select the box next to the green check mark. When selected, the box should turn red.
  9. Save your changes.

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