Support Android App Bundle (.aab)

Hi team,

are there any plans that Mobile Center supports the upload of android .aab packages?

Hi,

.aap format is used to generate a bundle that will be transcoded to APK by Google Play when uploaded to the store.

There is also command-line tool (bundletool) that is used to build APK from AAP - this one is used for testing.

Therefore, I don't see too much need to maintain .AAB format, since it still require transcoding to APK for execution. 

We can allow upload to AAB format, but during upload we will convert it to APK (using packaging service that we have in the tool) and store it as APK file.

Will that be sufficient?
