Do I need Android studio for if the game packed by UE?

Hello everyone,

I got following questions from manual and got confused a little bit.

  1. If I create 2D game for Android, pack it with UE, do I still need Android studio? Or I can upload .apk directly?
  2. How can I debug the game on device(can it be done as UE + device or it needs UE + Android studio)?

Thank you in advance.

For simple android game dev using unreal, you do not need android studio. Unreal will create the .apk and .obb files for you that can be uploaded to Google Play.

To debug on the device you have a few options. The simplest is to click the “Launch” button after connecting your physical android test device to your computer.
