Adding Your Google Play Reviews Account ID

On November 2, 2020, Google launched the redesigned Google Play Console which requires a new deep link format.

You will need to add this information for each Google Play app you track in Appbot if you wish to use the Reply links for that app. You will be prompted to do so the first time you attempt to reply:

Step 1

Head to the Google Play Console and select the correct app:
Select Google Play Reviews App

Step 2

Go to the URL bar and copy the current URL:
Google Play Console App URL

Step 3

Paste in the URL and save
Google Play Console App URL link
Now when you reply to reviews for that app you should be successfully directed to the Google Play Console.

This process needs to be repeated for each app. It only needs to be done once, and the details will be saved for your entire team.

Replying From Our Integrated Services:

If you have any integrations set up (Zendesk, FreshDesk, Slack, etc.), you’ll also find reply links inside the reviews that get posted, so you can reply directly to your reviews from these services. Read more about our Integrations here.

When a review comes through to your integration, click on the link next to ‘Reply’ and you’ll be taken directly to that review inside your Google Play Developer Console, where you can leave your reply – it’s that simple.
