    Workaround: you can retrieve application identifier on UWP by using this code:

    static string GetApplicationIdentifierWithUWPWorkaround()
    {
    #if UNITY_WSA && ENABLE_WINMD_SUPPORT
    return Windows.ApplicationModel.Package.Id.Name;
    #else
    return Application.identifier;
    #endif
    }

    Hey @peachypixels,

    we don't plan to backport this to 2020 & 2021 simply because it was never implemented on UWP and it was treated as a new feature. However, I added a workaround you can use in 2020.3 & 2021.3 in the resolution notes.

    It would be great if this could be fixed in 2020 & 2021 as well. Thank you!
