iOS SDK Changes
v25 of Skillz has removed
UIWebView. Apple deprecated
UIWebView, and as a result, older versions of Skillz cannot be used in new apps as of April 2020, and cannot be used in app updates as of December 2020. Details of the deprecation on Apple Developer News.
Android SDK Changes
The AndroidX Support Libraries are required by the Skillz SDK instead of the original Android Support Libraries. Refer to the "Enable AndroidX" section in the Upgrade Notes on how to migrate your Android Studio project to use the new libraries.
New Unity SDK Features
This release introduces new and exciting features to the Unity SDK.
Prior to v25.x, testing a game's workflow with Skillz involved a bit of overheard. Developers had to export to either Android Studio or Xcode, and then compile and run the game. This was often a time consuming process. With the Unity Companion, testing a game's workflow with Skillz can be done entirely in the Unity editor. When a game is run in the editor, the Skillz SDK will display low-fidelity screens to simulate a basic game workflow with Skillz. Refer here for further reading.
Google Play Services Resolver Support
v25.x bundles the Google Play Services Resolver plugin. This is a popular plugin that resolves Android dependencies between multiple libraries. Integrating Skillz with your Unity based game for Android has now become even easier. Refer to either the upgrade or fresh installation instructions for more details.
