Google Play Promo Video

You can add a promotional YouTube video to your store listing by entering a URL in the "Promo video" field. While a promo video is not required, it's highly recommended as a fun, engaging way to show your potential users the features of your app.

  • Make sure to use an individual video's YouTube URL, not a YouTube playlist or channel URL.
  • Don't use an age-restricted video as your app's promo video.
  • Use the full YouTube video link instead of a shortened link.
    • Use: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yourvideoid
    • Don't use: https://youtu.be/yourvideoid
  • Some sections of the Play Store show groups of recommended games using videos. For your game to be eligible, your video trailer should be in landscape orientation.

Where it's displayed

The promo video appears in the first position of your graphic assets on the Google Play web store (play.google.com). If you're using the Play Store app, a Play button overlays the feature graphic at the top of a store listing.
