Slashgear says that Now all developers in the Google Play Store will be able to respond to any and all comments or reviews.

But I can't figure out how. In the developer console, here is the UI I have to see reviews:

enter image description here

No hidden button appear on mouseover or anything.

  • Is the answer button hidden somewhere?
  • Do I have to change a setting to enable it?
  • Has the feature not been deployed yet?

it's not available for all yet. Slashgear had jumped the gun – Sathya Jan 21 '13 at 9:10
@Sathya - but it is available to 'all' now? – pnuts May 8 '14 at 18:52

This feature is currently only available to select developers, not all. I also do not have this ability.

From http://support.google.com/googleplay/android-developer/answer/138230?hl=en:

We are also piloting a new developer response feature, where select developers can publicly reply to any comment once. In such a case, an email will be sent to the commenting user with an option to update the comment or contact the developer directly through the support email address provided in the Google Play Developer Console.
