Include Addressables scenes

This page describes how to configure Android Performance Tuner to include Addressables scenes in Unity.

Addressables allow developers to dynamically load content at runtime. This can include scenes that are not present in Unity's build settings when the .apk is built. Before Android Performance Tuner 1.5.1, those scenes were not recognised by Android Performance Tuner and couldn't be inspected in the Play Console.


Support for Addressables scenes has the following requirements:

  • Android Performance Tuner 1.5.1 or later
  • Unity 2019.3 or later
  • Addressables package 1.19.4 or later

Add Addressables scenes

To make Android Performance Tuner recognise your Addressables scenes, do the following:

  1. When you’re ready to test your app, go to Window > Android Performance Tuner > Setup and open the Addressables Settings tab.

    Figure 1. Addressables Settings window.

  2. Click the Update Addressables Scenes button.

By default, all the scenes contained in the AddressableAssetSettingsDefaultObject are included in Android Performance Tuner. The window now displays a list of all the scenes that were found coupled with their value as saved in the proto file.

Figure 2. Addressables scenes listed by Android Performance Tuner.

To change the Addressable Settings Object from which scenes are pulled:

  1. Go to the Assets/AndroidPerformanceTuner_gen/Runtime/Resources folder and open the SetupConfig scriptable object in the Inspector.

  2. Insert the path to your custom Settings Object in the Addressables Settings Object Path field, including the name of the file.

We recommend that you update the Addressables scenes when your scenes layout is semi-final to avoid backward compatibility issues.

Android Performance Tuner only collects data for scenes that were present in the .apk file that was uploaded to the Play Console.

Resetting Addressables scenes

You can reset your Addressables scenes by clicking Reset Addressables Scenes in the Addressables Settings tab. However, this breaks compatibility with the currently-published version of the app.

Dynamically updating the SetupConfig object in the app without publishing a new release will result in errors in the Play Console as the scene-value relations won't be preserved.

Setting Addressables scenes in annotations

If you're using default annotations, Android Performance Tuner automatically sets the correct scene. If you're using custom annotations, call ConvertAddressableScenePathToAPTSceneIndex():

tuner.SetCurrentAnnotation(new Annotation
    Scene = (Scene) tuner.ConvertAddressableScenePathToAPTSceneIndex(scenePath),
    Difficulty = Difficulty.Medium
