    I am one of the engineers in the networks affected with Unity 5.6 update.

    This is relevant to this:

    and this:

    With Unity 5.6 you cannot add a view on top of the SurfaceView of Unity. Most of ad networks call addContentView to place their ads. This way all ad network solutions do not work with this new update of Unity since their views have the wrong Z order. AdMob released an update to their plugin where they render their ads in a PopupWindow which has it's own view hierarchy in a different window and it's placed on top of everything.

    That could be a workaround but it will not work for the majority of the cases since in Android PopupWindow (or a Dialog) has a lot of limitations restricting this way the behaviour of the plugins.

    Please provide a fix in the next update allowing adding a content view on top of Unity's surface view as it used to work.
