Can a new Android app replace existing app in the play store?


Asked by Saarang T on November 10, 2021 (source).

I have an android app developed in native Android, which is released in the Play store. I am wondering if I should rebuild the app in Flutter as I want both Android and iOS apps. However, I am not sure if the new android app developed using Flutter will be able to replace the current app. I want to use the same package name and release key. Also, most importantly preserve my users.

Thank you!

Yes, it is possible if you sign the new flutter app with the same release key and with the same package id.
