How do I remove my app from sale in the Google Play Store?

Apps that have been published can be removed from sale, however, once an app has been live in the store, it cannot be removed from the Developer Console. It can only be unpublished.

To unpublish your app, near the top of one of your app’s pages, click Unpublish app.

Once set to unpublished, your readers can continue to use their copies of your app and can receive updates. However, the app will not be available on Google Play.
