    When intalling multiple versions of unity is it necessary to includo everytime those 2.8 GB? I understand the Android Build Support could be exclusive for each particular version, but can't the SDK and NDK tools be stored in a common place and all versions get linked to them?

    Yes I know I can download them separately with Android Studio and all that, but this is about the Unity Hub.

    Hi,

    Thanks for posting your feedback. Many platforms will migrate to Unity Packages meaning they will no longer need to be downloaded more than once. This isn't coming very soon though. You may have to wait until 2020 for the first preview platform packages to come out. Stay tuned.

    Best,

    This is huge!

    That means we will see source code of many platforms like Android or iOS that it's really important to understand Unity internals on mobile native code.

    I don't know about this, you may want to inquire in the platforms part of the forums.
