How to solve:

After lots of research I can say Pre-Registration is open for beta testing.

Use Pre-Registration to Build an Instant User Base

Before you get started with actual beta testing, make sure you consider doing a pre-registration campaign. People who sign up will get a notification when your app launches.

Imagine having a potential installation base of thousands (or maybe even millions) of people, even before your app launches! Here is more information on how pre-registration works…

To setup a pre-registration campaign, contact a Google Business Development manager to get things started. You can use your favorite user acquisition method like paid ads, social media or your email list to drive people to your pre-registration page.

Once you have that setup, it’s time to get back to testing…

which explain what is Pre-registering

The name is misleading a bit. It’s basically notification about application release (so you do not need to bother checking yourself if it is out or not). The main benefit for the publisher is that he can attract the attention for unreleased product so people already know about it when it is out.

At the moment pre-registering feature is not available for every publisher account.

I have talked with Google play, this was my question

How can I make Pre-Register?

This was the answer from google play (chat support).

I apologize the pre-registration feature is only available as a pilot at this time to a limited number of mobile games.

It means that only selected developers will have the option to use “pre-registration” at this time.

If you are selected to participate, the option will be available in your Console.
