Creativity starts in the Unity Hub, where you can explore all that Unity has to offer for real-time 3D creation. Read on to learn what’s new.

The Unity Hub is a desktop app that both streamlines and facilitates how you find, download, and manage Unity projects and Editor installations. It not only simplifies your approach to creation, but provides a series of features and resources to help you get the job done.

Our latest release introduces much improved workflows and an enhanced user experience, all designed to accelerate productivity. Want to know more? We’ve unpacked a few of these new capabilities below.

A fresh look and feel

When you enter the Unity Hub, you’ll encounter a modern interface. Along with its new dark theme, you’ll see a sleek and well-organized navigation menu with clear prompts so you can find what you’re looking for.

Stronger collaboration with teammates

You can now open and share remote projects with your team directly in the Hub. This makes for smooth teamwork and alignment on crucial projects.

More control over your downloads

We’ve introduced a new Download Manager to give you more control, visibility, and information on your downloads. With the Download Manager, you’ll be able to monitor progress, queue downloads, and troubleshoot any detected errors.

A streamlined sign-on experience

With Secure Standard Authentication, you’ll experience a more secure, standardized sign-in flow, which includes a one-time sign in to access Unity Hub, Dashboard, and Editor all through the browser.

Official Editor support for Apple silicon

We brought macOS development workflows natively to M1 with Editor support for Apple silicon. And now, when using the latest Apple devices, you can access the Apple silicon builds right from the Unity Hub (starting with version 3.0). Learn more about this here.

Refined experience for Linux users

Not only is the Unity Hub supported on machines running CentOS 7 and Ubuntu 18.04, 20.04 operating systems, but we’ve also made it easier for Linux users to install the Hub and access its features. 

Check out these instructions to get started, or peruse a full list of updates and improvements to the Unity Hub here.

When you open the Unity Hub app, you’ll see a prompt to Restart Now. Select the button to install the latest version.

If you experience an issue, please file a bug report in the Unity Hub by selecting your profile icon > Troubleshooting > Report a bug.
