While Apple requires that your company publish your app using your own developer account, the Google Play Store doesn't. We take care of publishing your Branded Event App to the Google Play Store using the Webex Events Google Developer Account — unless you ask us not to.

When you submit your app (or before!), be sure to let us know if you want to publish it to your own Google Play Store account. Otherwise, we'll use ours.

While we work to transition all of our processes and accounts to our new brand, we publish the app as Socio Labs. If you'd like your Branded App to show your company's name as the developer, you need to register a Google Developer Account and authorize Webex Events to publish the app to your account.

Request a Google Developer Account

In the Google Play Console, sign in to a Google account associated with your organization, and create a Google Developer Account following the instructions provided. You'll be prompted to pay a registration fee.

Grant Webex Events access to publish under your account

Once you set up your account, give Webex Events permission to publish your Event App under your account, following Google's instructions.

Invite hello@atsocio.com and either grant us full access, or grant access only to your Event App. That's not a typo! If you'd like to grant access to the Event App only, create a placeholder app, then grant us access only to that app.

That's it! Pretty easy, right? Now let's make sure your Apple Developer Account is set up.
