Unity SDk is forcing the android.hardware.camera permission to be required in AndroidManifest

June 22, 2020 - 7:58am #1



I've been using Vuforia for a while, but since a couple of updates back the SDK is forcing the android.hardware.camera permission to be required in the AndroidManifest:

<uses-feature android:name="android.hardware.camera" android:required="true"/>


This previously used to set the android:required permission to false, thus making it optional. When it's true, the Google Play Store will not distribute it to some devices (e.g Chromebooks or devices without a rear-facing camera).


As I only use Vuforia for a small part of my app and wish to have the rest of the app available on Chromebooks still, I really need to get this back to an optional permission.


Any ideas on how I can achieve this?
