Which apk will beta users get if beta apk is older that official apk?

I have set up a Google Play beta program for my Android app. Imagine the following scenario:

  • I publish apk1 as a beta release with
    versionCode 1

  • Beta users install this beta release

  • I publish apk2 as an official release build with
    versionCode 2

Will beta users be offered apk2 by Google Play?

...your alpha APKs should have the highest version codes, followed by beta, and finally production.

  • If a production APK is uploaded with a higher version code than an alpha or beta APK, some or all of your alpha and beta users will install the production APK, instead of APKs of the testing tracks.
