Android - Publication timeframe

There are unavoidable delays to publish an Android native app to the Play Store.
There are several steps before your Android app is available on the Play Store.
In a perfect world, it still takes up a few days once your app is ready in your Goodbarber back office, so never wait until the last day if you're in a rush.

This timeframe is in ideal conditions, but beware, you are the principal actor of this process, it depends very much on you.
