Matchmaker Overview

Attention: The Digital Services Act (DSA) requires Unity to notify our customers’ end users if Unity takes an action which impacts those end users under the DSA. To comply with this requirement, if you use Unity Gaming Services (UGS) products that rely on the Unity Authentication Service, you must integrate the notification API by the effective date of the DSA: February 17, 2024. The notification API is ready for adoption in late January 2024.

For more information on DSA, refer to the Digital Services Act - compliance update.

To make your game compliant, refer to DSA notifications.
