    Help same issue here. I cannot tell if Android SDK 28 has all necessary components installed, because it does not appear in the Unity list of targets.

    The lack of support for API level 29 means that Unity does not have Safe Area support on Android 9.0. So the hack with Automatic does not fix the issue.

    Update: I overlooked something. I can now confirm that 2017.4 *will* build for API level 28 if target API level is set to "Automatic (highest installed)" and API level 28 is properly installed in Android SDK / Studio. (Just uploaded to Google Play and it recognized 28 as target level.) Thanks Obsurveyor for the idea! :).

    Same here. Setting it to "Automatic" also doesn't seem to work for me. I have API level 28 and 29 installed via Android Studio at the location Unity uses, but it will still build with level 27.

    Since August 1 you can not publish new game made on Unity 2017.4 LTS. Since November 1 you will not be able to publish the update to the game with Unity 2017.4 LTS.

    If this fix does not come in 2017.4 LTS it will become useless. If you will try to update to 2018.4 LTS you will have to deal rebuild the game to support new prefab system.

    Confirmed as well. At least you can set it to Automatic and it will use 28 if that's the highest you have installed.
