[Android App] How to block or filter out Google Play pre-launch report bots

As you may know, whenever a new app version is uploaded to Google Play, a pre-launch report is run that tests the app.

How can I block or filter out the events that these bots generate?

Right now every time I update the app Google Play launches up to 12 bots at the same time and it’s making it it very hard to get valuable data about users that update the app.

I have tried the following solution to detect the bots and disable analytics but it does not seem to work anymore (it works for Firebase Test Lab but not for these pre-launch reports):

Any solutions? Thanks!
