Let release and debug builds coexist on Android device #2705
For some kinds of debugging, it's helpful to install the debug build on your own device, where you may also have the release build installed from the Play Store.
(The same thing is true on iOS, but I think the mechanisms to do it will be different and I don't know the exact situation; so that's for a separate issue.)
Currently this isn't possible. The main obstacle is that we're using the same app ID for debug and release. Instead, we should build the app with a separate "application ID" when doing a debug (aka dev) build. There's upstream docs for this here:
I think there may be another obstacle or two that come up. They should all be solvable with a bit of Gradle code, taking advantage of documentation and also Stack Overflow and other web search results.
Ya! sure go for it @prateek3255.
