Supported Platforms

Audacity is for Windows, Mac and Linux desktop machines. There is no version of Audacity for Android or iPhone.
  • Audacity 3.1.x 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.
  • 3.1.x 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.
    • Other Linux distributions should work, but aren't tested by the Audacity team.
