I am using Ionic 6 and capacitor in a project.
In the config.xml file I have:
<widget xmlns="w3.org/ns/widgets"; xmlns:cdv="cordova.apache.org/ns/1.0">
When I try to change it to:
<widget version="0.0.1" xmlns="w3.org/ns/widgets"; xmlns:cdv="cordova.apache.org/ns/1.0">
and then do ionic build android the version disappears and nothing is changed in the AndroidManifest.xml file.
When I import the apk or other into google play to test it tells me that the version already exists.
So how do I change the app version?
Forget about config.xml, that’s a cordova thing and not used in capacitor (other that being there for the cordova plugin compatibility).
In capacitor apps you manage the version as you would do in a native android app, that’s changing the values in the
There are two fields:
versionCode: this is the version you have to increment every time you submit a new version to google play. It’s an integer.
versionName: this is the visible version that will be displayed in google play. It’s a string.
