Full details of new features in the visual guide to New Features in 3.0.2

Supported Platforms

Audacity is for Windows, Mac and Linux desktop machines. There is no version of Audacity for Android or iPhone.
  • Audacity 3.0.2 requires the CPU to support the SSE2 instruction set which should be available on any Intel hardware produced after 2001 and any AMD hardware produced after 2003.
    • To check what SSE levels your CPU supports, you can install CPU-Z.
    • If your hardware only supports SSE, you may download Audacity 2.0.6 see the Legacy Windows page on the Audacity Website.
  • 3.0.1 does not support Windows XP.
    • You may try 2.2.2 on XP, but it is unsupported.
macOS / Mac OS X
  • Linux support is tested on Ubuntu Linux.
    • Audacity may compile on Gentoo, Debian, Mint.
    • Audacity does not currently compile on SuSE Linux.


We probably track more bugs than you are interested in...

We used to have a separate page with a dynamic buglist for each version, but nowadays we recommend instead to visit our bugzilla instance for current bug status.

We do use this detail in our own QA work.

Highlighted Issues

Below are listed what we believe are the most common and important issues with 3.0.2 for most users.

macOS Big Sur


  • Less of Audacity is properly accessible to visually impaired users than we would like. Currently the best supported platform for accessibility is Windows. We lost a lot of custom accessibility programming when we had to move to a more recent version of the wxWidgets library.


  • Audacity is only partially translated in many languages. We also have some issues, for example, with Right-To-Left Languages.
