  1. Resolution Note (fix version 2019.2):

    First frame does really return "Unreachable", but the second frame is already good. Since the OS API is async and we don't want to wait for the callback on the main thread on the first frame, this is an expected behavior. Please wait for the second frame to get a reliable result.

    I have the same problem.

    # Unity Version

    # Test Code
    public class DebugInternetReachability : MonoBehaviour
    void Update()

    (Attach to a GameObject in first scene)

    # Device
    ZTE Axon7 (Android7.1.1)

    # Result
    09-20 16:52:25.636 18063 18091 I Unity : NotReachable

    09-20 16:55:22.876 18063 18091 I Unity : NotReachable

    (The state changed "ReachableViaLocalAreaNetwork" when waking from sleep)

    Seeing this on Oculus Quest, the app seems to stay in a "not reachable" state regardless of connectivity.

    On our test devices Application.internetRechability always returns NotReachable, not only in the first frame (also after seconds or minutes). (Samsung Galaxy S5 for example). Works fine with every Unity version < 2019.2
