Adding ARDK to your Unity project

How to import ARDK into Unity.

ARDK is not supported by certain Mac models with Apple Silicon processors (‘M1 chips’) as ARDK requires the Unity 2019.4 LTS version which is also incompatible with Apple Silicon. The Niantic team is aware of this issue and is working to support this in future versions.


The easiest way to add ARDK assets to a Unity project is to import it as a Custom package.

1) In the Unity Editor, choose Assets > Import Package > Custom Package to open up a file selection window.

2) Select the ARDK .unitypackage you want to import, and the Import Unity Package dialog box will be displayed with all the items in the package pre-checked.

3) Click the Import button and Unity will place all the contents of the package in the Assets folder, which you can access from your Project View.
