    Hi there,

    We're in the process of porting our Unity based games to the Switch and we note that the Remote Settings classes don't seem to be available on that platform - we guess because they're part of the Unity Connect DLL which isn't present on Switch.

    It seems odd that Remote Settings falls foul of this as it feels like a separate component to the rest of the data collection systems in Unity Connect. It means that we need to reconsider whether we can use Unity Analytics/Remote Settings/AB testing at all, if support for the Switch is not coming.

    @chrisendicott That is correct, Unity Analytics does not include console support.

    Thanks, but do you have plans to support other platforms (Switch/PC/Mac) in the near future? Or is this a definite no?

    We have full support for PC and Mac. Consoles like Switch are mostly an issue for contractual rather than technical reasons.
