Subscription? Collaborate? Pro? Teams? I'm so confused.

    Is 'Teams' what gives you 'Cloud build' ? Or is that just Collaborate? Why is everything named so badly? If I get Unity Plus, do I get Cloud Build? With the cloud build, I can pay extra for a bunch of addons - what do I get if I 'just' get Pro or Plus? I can't find this anywhere, and quite frankly every Unity page on this is far too keen to tell me how great it is, as opposed to giving me much useful Info. Help!

    TL;DR - Do you get Cloud Builds as part of Unity Plus subscription?

    Unity Teams is the subscription model for both the Cloud Build and the Collaborate services.

    Unity Teams has a free tier which includes:
    • 1GB of Cloud Storage to use with Collaborate
    • 3 Seats for team members to use Collaborate
    • Ability to share local builds via the Cloud Build Dashboard
    • Collaborate version history is limited to 90 days
    The paid tier, "Unity Teams Advanced" includes:
    • 25GB of Cloud Storage to use with Collaborate
    • 3 Seats for team members to use Collaborate with the ability to purchase more if required
    • Full use of the Cloud Build service including building in the Cloud
    • Unlimited Collaborate version history
    There are also 3 add-ons which can be purchased which are:
    • 25GB extra Cloud Storage to use with Collaborate
    • Add an extra Concurrent build for building in the Cloud (Requires Unity Teams Advanced)
    • Add an extra Teams Seat to be allocated to a team member to use Collaborate (Requires Unity Teams Advanced)
    To answer your question, Unity Teams Advanced is not included with a Pro or Plus subscription (Unless otherwise stated in a promotion). Unity Teams Advanced would need to be purchased for the ability to perform builds on the Cloud.

    I hope that helps clarify. Please see here for pricing and more information.

    When did that change? Does it also change for existing customers?

    Those stealth changes to pricing and services are starting to annoy me.

    If you ever manage to find the page where you upgrade the number of concurrent cloud builds, be sure to make a bookmark. As with this insanely over complicated subscription/feature/service model Unity came up with, you can pay for the possibility to run for example both an ios build and an android build at the same time. But that requires you to find that secret, hidden, mystery page. ;)

    @AcidArrow This was never meant to be a stealth change. Collaborate and Cloud Build were free for a long time, until the introduction of Teams at which point it was included with Plus and Pro for a promotional period which then ended in January of this year.
    Please let me know the URL at which you have seen that Teams is included with Plus or Pro and I will get this reviewed.

    @HaakonL To solve the riddle of the Concurrent Builds mystery page. Please do the following:
    • Go to https://unity3d.com/teams
    • Click on "Choose Your Plan"
    • Scroll down and click on "Buy Now" where it says "More Builds Faster"
    • Bookmark the page!! :)

    I am currently planning to build a game with a number of my high school students in Queens NY. I have gotten the three seats and will be beginning the project in Mid January. With Unity Teams Basic will I be able to have students working on the same code or the same level on two different computers? Or will they have to work on separate aspects and share those builds for the others on the team since Basic does not come with "Full use of the Cloud Build."

    Thanks for the support!

    Hi @MADGlobal,

    Unity Teams Basic comes with three seats and gives you full access to the Collaborate features, meaning that all your team members can work on the same project. If your team is three members or less and your project does not exceed 1GB in size then Unity Teams Basic should meet your requirement.

    You will need Unity Teams Advanced if you wish to increase your team size beyond three. If you wish to have more than 1GB of Cloud Storage then you can do this by upgrading to Unity Teams Advanced or by purchasing 25GB Cloud Storage packs.

    Cloud Build is a different service altogether, which offers the ability to compile and test your project for many different platforms in the Cloud with added extras like notifications, building concurrently, unit testing, sharing builds and much more. If building locally within the Editor is suffice for your team and you do not require build automation or a platform for sharing then this service will likely not be needed.

    You mention that you are working with students, if your school/college/university has Unity Pro for Education licenses then they will also be able to purchase a Unity Teams for Education add on which would give them the ability to provide advanced features like increasing team sizes and Cloud Storage. If this is of interest to you or your educational organization please have them contact their Unity representative for more information.

    I hope this information is helpful.
