Unity Remote 5 — App for Mobile Testing on iOS & Android using Unity Editor & Mobile Phone with USB Connection without Building of App. It’s the only solution to quick checking of ideas, but this way you can’t get real experience about Mobile App because behavior of Real Build may be different.
Unity Remote is mainly used to Test Sensors that are only on Mobile Phone (gyro, accelerometer, compass, etc.). So you will see your mobile game on Phone (also in Unity Editor) & get data from Sensors.
Mobile Testing with Unity Remote: Tips & Tricks
There are some inconveniences (not bugs, it’s by design) & features:
- You need to hit Play — Stop — Play in Unity Editor for sensor detecting in first time.
- You can freeze a state of sensor by turning off the screen of mobile phone or by disabling of wire. This is convenient if you need to test the game at the moment with certain sensor values.
- When switching between testing via wire and without it, you need to restart Unity Editor to reset sensor data.
Gyroscope & Accelerometer
You can’t test Camera Stream with WebCamTexture from Mobile Phone (docs are wrong), so in Unity Editor & on Mobile Phone you will see Camera Stream from laptop. If you know the magic of how to make it work, please share it in comments.
