As google guidelines, personal accounts that opened after nov 2023 need to make close testing to every new app with 20 testers for 14 days.

Go to close testing and enter  the testing track

After entering the track management you will have a screen that will alow you to add testers (they emails) , select countries and manage the test release that you need to send to review.

After you send the app for Google review you need to wait for Google approval. (can take a couple of days)
and then you will see on the app dashboard a section that shows you your test progress and requirements and an option to ask for “Apply For Production”

Productions: 

After you asked us to upload the app to your Google Play developer account, We uploaded a signed APK file to your account.

Now, Google requests details about the app, content rating, prices, countries where the app will publish, screenshots, etc.

 

Before starting, it is important to know that Google and Apple are interested in useful applications and not in advertising applications so it is recommended to describe the usefulness of the application and not write a promotional caption.
