  • Open Unity Hub. Select the Installs tab and click on the ADD button.
  • Select a version of Unity (the latest Zoe release was tested with Unity 2019.4.0f1). Click NEXT.
  • If you plan on using an Oculus Quest, check Android Build Support; otherwise click DONE. The version of Unity you selected is now installing. Wait until that process is done.
