    Hey,

    starting from Unity 2019.1.0a11 we're introducing Android Logcat package. More info here - https://docs.unity3d.com/Packages/com.unity.mobile.android-logcat@0.1/manual/index.html

    Quick steps to set it up:
    * Unity has to have Android Support installed
    * Set active platform to be Android in Build Settings Window
    * Set Scripting Runtime Version to .NET 4.x in Player Settings (You may be asked to restart Unity)
    * Enable preview packages via Window->PackageManager->Advanced->Show preview packages

    * Select and install Android Logcat

    * Android Logcat can be enabled via Windows->Analysis->Android Logcat
    * Alternatively when you'll do Build & Run for Android, Android Logcat will open automatically and will filter to your package.


    Feedback is very welcomed !

    I was excited to until I read "Unity has to have Android Support installed"I assume Android Studio.. the bit I was hoping to get rid of with this package as a replacement :)

    Also why not include a screenshot of what this thing actually looks like.. we've all seen the package manager.

    There are a number of screenshots posted if you follow the link to the documentation at the top. Also, you do not need Android studio. You need Unity's Android support installed and the Android SDK (soon to be installed automatically by Unity). If your doing any Android developer with Unity you would already have the Android support installed.

    Android has cli tools, so Studio isn't necessarily a requirement. Available for Windows, Mac, and Linux

    I find Logcat a pain sometimes, so this is nice to see.
