I'd like to install the most recent public version of an app I'm working on. I also happen to be a beta tester.

The page for the app in the Android Play Store has many tells that it is for the internal beta:

You're an internal tester. This app may be insecure or unstable.

How do I switch out of this without removing myself from the beta tester list?


If you want to go back to the public version, you just have to leave the beta program. Leaving the beta program is done using the page for the application in the Google Play Store. Open the page of the app in the Google Play Store, and scroll down till you something like "You're a beta tester". Just below that title, there should be a button "Leave". Pressing that button will bring you back to the general public version.

Watch out, because some apps don't work that good if you want to go back in version numbers. Could be you have to reinstall the app afterwards.

  • "without removing myself from the beta tester list". I suppose it is not yet possible then.

    The only way is by removing yourself from the beta tester list as far as I know. You can probably go back to the beta if you want after going to the public version?
