Android Device - Managed Google Play Private App - Staged Rollout

Brass Contributor

We have a number of Android Apps that were developed in-house that we are deploying to Intune enrolled corporate-owned dedicated devices using the Google Play Private Apps feature. We are able to successfully deploy these apps to the devices using this method. I want to set up a staged rollout process in the event that we need to release a new version of the app. I can update the app in the Play Store, but that would push untested changes out to every device at once. I would like to be able to release to a subset of devices first before pushing out an update to every device. I see that this can be accomplished in the Google play console by adding test users, but this requires a user to be associated with a device. Does anyone know a way to accomplish this?
