  10. If there are no policy related matters that still need your attention, you can click the Send 1 change for review button to submit your new app version.

  11. Your app is now in review

In case the app is rejected -or suspended as Google calls it- you will receive an email notification from Google on the owner email address of your Google Play developer account explaining why the app was suspended and what needs to be changed. The time it takes Google to review is generally anywhere between 1-3 days, depending on the amount of apps that have been submitted to Google. Congratulations, you've successfully updated your Android app in the Google Play Store!
