GooglePlay Inapp Review API Integration in Android Application

Write a review to any Android application user has to go GooglePlay and there they has to select app and write  a review for the application.

Due to this lenthy process user might not interest on writing a review for the app.

This post will teach you how to integrate GooglePlay Inapp review API in Android

 

Let's get started
Step 1: Create an Android application in Android studio
Step 2: Add Inapp Review dependencies in build.gradle file

 

implementation 'com.google.android.play:core-ktx:1.8.1'


Step 3: To work with API we need to create an instance of ReviewManager class

 

Create RequestInfo Object

val request = manager.requestReviewFlow()
request.addOnCompleteListener { request ->
    if (request.isSuccessful) {
        // We got the ReviewInfo object
        val reviewInfo = request.result
    } else {
        // There was some problem, continue regardless of the result.
    }
}

 

Launch InApp Review Window

val flow = manager.launchReviewFlow(activity, reviewInfo)
flow.addOnCompleteListener { _ ->
    // The flow has finished. The API does not indicate whether the user
    // reviewed or not, or even whether the review dialog was shown. Thus, no
    // matter the result, we continue our app flow.
}

 

Step 4: Add Internet permission in manifest file

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET"/>

 

Step 5: To Test the InApp Review API App should be publish in GooglePlay.

What i did for this is

  • Create a build
  • Released app in Internal Testing
  • After publishing app in Testing mode install app in rmobile and open applicatio

 

Minimum requirements

  • Android devices should be running on Android 5.0 (API level 21) or higher and should have Google play store installed
  • Chrome OS devices that have Google play store app installed Play core library with v1.8.0 or higher.

 

Design guidelines & Quota restrictions

  • The Review dialog should not be tampered or altered by modifying the design
  • Any overlay should not be added on top or around the card
  • Review dialog will automatically be removed based on user action
  • To protect user privacy and avoid API misuse, this API has a limited quota per user.
  • Hence this functionality should not be triggered on a button click
  • Before presenting the Review card, the app should not ask user opinions like “Do you like the app?” or “Give this app 5 stars”, etc
