Publishing Error:

I uploaded app bundles (companion app for phone and Wear OS app) for my new watch face in Google Play Store. When I proceeded to publish the watch face, there was an Error warning for the app that was built using Watch Face Studio software:




APKs and bundles must not require the following features:

It seems that I should remove this in the manifest of Watch Face Studio, but I guess I can’t do that.

Please can Samsung team have a look into this problem ?


When you upload an app to the Google Play Store, you must separately upload a dummy app for mobile phone and a bundled app for watch.

Register the dummy app as usual, and register the watch face app after changing the form factor to wearOS to register normally.

Thank you for the reply. It’s all good now. I was not aware of the new change in Google Play Console’s production page. Before, I just upload two apps together with no problem.

So, now when I upload the phone app I have to choose “Phones, tablets, chrome os” under the “create new release” drop down menu, and then upload the phone app.

Then when I upload the WearOS app I have to choose “Wear OS” in that drop down menu of the “create new release”.

Now I realize the other day because I wasn’t aware of this dropdown menu, I made a mistake by uploading the 2 apps under the “phone, tablet, chrome os” section.
