"Couldn't upload. Try again." error on Google Play Console


When I try to upload my Android App Bundle to the Google Play Console, I get this generic error message saying "Couldn't upload. Try again.".

I've already tried:

  • making sure my versionName and versionCode are unique among all uploaded artifacts
  • making sure that the .aab/.apk is signed with the proper key
  • re-uploading the .AAB file
  • re-uploading the .APK file
  • checking status of google services to make sure that there isn't a mass outage
  • asking my senior Android dev what's up

How do I resolve this error and upload my .AAB or .APK?

When I try to upload my Android App Bundle to the Google Play Console, I get this generic error message: Couldn't upload. Try again.


Solution

  • Google Chrome

    Use a new Incognito window to upload the .aab or .apk (as mentioned in the comments).

    Alternatively, clear the website data:

    1. going to: developer console (F12) > Application > Storage > Clear site data
    2. press F5 to refresh the page
    3. uploading the .apk/.aab again

    Safari

    Open Preferences > Privacy > Manage Website Data > Remove All > Done
