Android OS Specifics

Depending on the OS version of your target Android device and which Unity version you are using to build the application, there might be some additional steps that you will need to follow. Generally speaking, the latest version of LTS 2020.3 requires the least setup to build for the newer versions of Android OS, which is why we recommend using that version. Please refer to these links to learn more about it:

  1. Build for Android 11 with Unity

  2. Build for Android 12 with Unity

Once you have followed all the steps listed above, your project should be ready to build your application for Android devices. You can follow the standard Android build process for Unity, and run it on your device.
