    Hello -

    We’re very excited about the future of DevOps at Unity and are eager to bring you quality tools that help streamline your workflows! We believe the best approach is to focus our attention for the next year on foundational parts of the pipeline, specifically version control, build, and artifact storage.

    These areas are fundamental to automated testing, and will help us provide a more streamlined, end-to-end experience. As a result, we’ve decided to put further development of Automated QA on hold, and hope to reassess in the second half of 2022.

    While we are disappointed we can’t immediately continue work in this area, we’re confident that maximizing the quality of the foundational areas will increase the effectiveness and velocity of automated testing when we pick development back up again in the future.

    What does this mean for existing Automated QA users?

    Cloud testing via cloud device farm will be taken offline, but local testing features will remain active, and tests will still run in the editor; recorded playback, generated tests, and the Test Driver, will be unaffected and should continue to work as intended.

    The package will be unsupported and won't be updated with newer versions of Unity, and our Automated QA email and forum will no longer be monitored.

    Continue to follow our development plans on our new Unity DevOps roadmap page.

    Thank you for your support,

    The Unity DevOps Product Team
