Deploy Xamarin Android app to Google Play Store

Ranjit 1 Reputation point

When uploading a Xamarin Android bundle for the first time to Google Play Store, using VS2019, you archive it and use the bundle. When we try to upload directly to Google from VS is says that Google expects us to upload the bundle manually and we need to use the ad-hoc package. When you do so and upload this to the store it says the package is not signed (Google say we sign the app for you.). Now you try the ad-hoc method and create the keystore. After this you grab the signed version and upload it to Google Store, this Google says its got the wrong Sha1 fingerprint. Obviously it will be different as we make a keystore local and Google has a different one.
Please guide if anyone has faced this situation.
