I wonder how to upload a new game android app bundle which is bigger than the allowed 150MB?

What is the best practice for doing so?

 

Thanks for your help!

I'm wondering the same thing. The old method of doing this was to use an expansion file (.obb) by including the line "usesExpansionFile = true" in build.settings, but AAPs don't support .obb files. What's the new workflow? Is there one yet?

 

Thanks!

You will need to use expansion files for this or downloadable content.

Thanks for the response, Rob. However, expansion files are not allowed with AAB Android apps.

 

It seems like the Google-preferred method is Dynamic Feature Modules: https://developer.android.com/guide/app-bundle/

 

Has this been looked into?

You can still upload .apk files.

Yes, and that's what I did. But APK+OBB is obviously on its way out, so it's not a long-term solution. Already APK apps result in larger file sizes (and potentially a warning on the user's device? I thought I read that somewhere).

 

What's Corona's plan for Dynamic Feature Modules or some other way to support larger games built as AAB?

I'm not sure what our plans are, because we have spent a lot of time getting Android working and we have to turn our attention to other platforms for a while.
