Android: How to change specific name of the generated apk file in Android Studio?

Just add

   archivesBaseName = "NAME_YOU_WANT"

in the android{} part of your gradle file.

You’ll get “NAME_YOU_WANT-release.apk” as name of the generated file.

Step 1:
Go to root of the main project, under app , right click on app and refactor the app into specific name (example iPlanter) and press ok

Step 2:
Go to Project Setting file which is setting.gradle file

setting.gradle file contains

include ':app'

Now need to replace app by specific name.

For Example
app replace by iPlanter in include ‘:app’
it looks like below

include ':iPlanter'

then Sync project, after that run your application.
Finally, App generate an apk like iPlanter-debug.apk or iPlanter-release.apk file.

You just have to add following one line of code in app level gradle.

  1. For name only

archivesBaseName = “NAME_YOU_WANT”

 defaultConfig {

       applicationId "com.PACKAGENAME"

       minSdkVersion Integer.parseInt(MIN_SDK_LIBRARY)

       targetSdkVersion Integer.parseInt(TARGET_SDK)

       versionCode 11

       versionName "2.3"

       multiDexEnabled true

       archivesBaseName = "NAME_YOU_WANT"


    }
  1. Name with version

archivesBaseName = “NAME_YOU_WANT” + versionName

defaultConfig {

   applicationId "com.PACKAGENAME"

   minSdkVersion Integer.parseInt(MIN_SDK_LIBRARY)

   targetSdkVersion Integer.parseInt(TARGET_SDK)

   versionCode 11

   versionName "2.3"

   multiDexEnabled true

   archivesBaseName = "NAME_YOU_WANT" + versionName
}
