Vuforia 7.2.20 Android Submission

July 6, 2018 - 3:14pm #1

I have found that upon building a unity project for Android and attempting to submit the app to the Play Console, an error gets thrown to the tune of:

"The ARCore dependency minimum version code com.google.ar.core.min_apk_version is missing from the AndroidManifest.xml file although the meta-data tag com.google.ar.core has been specified."

It seems that upon integrating ARCore into my project (https://library.vuforia.com/content/vuforia-library/en/articles/Solution/arcore-with-vuforia.html), this issue is mitigated. However, it would seem that ARCore still does not support refocus/autofocus yet, and as a result, image tracking becomes useless when trying to track smaller images on ARCore enabled devices.

Is there another solution? I found a post on the Unity forums (https://forum.unity.com/threads/vuforia-7-2-20-and-android-submission-arcore-com-google-ar-core-min_apk_version-isnt-in-androidma.538843/) where someone mentioned bringing the project into Android Studio and manually editing the manifest file and building from there, but I would prefer to avoid having to do that if I can as building straight from Unity is so straightforward and much more painless.

1)  Go to https://library.vuforia.com/content/vuforia-library/en/articles/Solution/arcore-with-vuforia.html   --  Follow the instructions, just download the .aar file and import it into your Assets/Plugins/Android directory.

2)  TURN Multicore Rendering OFF in player settings.


Make sure ARCore is turned OFF and Vuforia is ON.


Save & Build.


I uploaded to the Google Play Store successfully after this!

I am having the same issue.  I cannot update my Google Play Store app after the latest Vuforia update.


I had the same issue updating the iOS version on the Apple App Store.  There was a quick fix for that one involving editing the Info.plist file in the Vuforia.framework


Now I am facing the same issue with Google Play Store and Android, but I do not know of any quick fix. *See attached image.  I searched for the XML file and edited it, found the location of the ARCORE reference.  I don't know the syntax for this file though.


A word from Vuforia on how to fix or if they can fix it themselves would be very nice...

Hi Alex,

In my case, I did not integrate ARcore at all, and only enabled vufori support in the player setting. However, I have the same error as you did and could not upload the APK. Can you think of any cause?

Thanks in advance!

I'm also having this issue and would love to know a fix!
