Addressables — VR & AR Development

When I started with Addressables, I never thought I'd need to go as deep as to make VR and AR-specific content.

Addressables — Cloud Content Update

One of the biggest benefits of Unity Addressables is that it enables you to improve your content iteration times dramatically.

Instead of making new full builds to update the assets of your game, you can just upload new asset bundles that your player will fetch. This makes the whole update process a breeze, and it is particularly helpful for engineering and selling your DLCs.
