Unity Editor Windows (X86-64)
New to Unity? Get started
- Analytics: Added support for fetching GoogleAdsId via new API RequestAdvertisingIdentifierAsync.

- VR: Optimized Oculus to start CPU work for next frame while Rendering the current frame.
- Samsung TV: Added Ignore BG Alpha Clear checkbox to Resolution section of Samsung TV player settings. This will disable the clearing of the alpha value for the background fill allowing for blending between Unity's render layer and the layer behind.
