Easily display and interact with webpages in 3D or 2D using the Unity web browser plugin trusted by many developers. See the developer site for full documentation.


System requirements

  • Unity 2018.3 or above
  • IL2CPP (deprecated .NET runtime not supported)
  • Universal Windows Platform on Windows 10 (x64, x86, arm, arm64) with D3D11 graphics
  • Requires a Build Type of XAML Project because the XAML WebView component is used as the browser engine.

Important notes and limitations

  • Product downloads are provided through the Vuplex Developer Dashboard.
  • This package only supports UWP. To support other platforms, you can install additional 3D WebView packages (Windows and macOS, Android, iOS, WebGL, or create a custom bundle). All of the 3D WebView packages work seamlessly together, so all you need to do is install them into the same project, and then 3D WebView automatically detects and uses the correct plugin at runtime and build time.
  • 3D WebView's native UWP plugins are provided as precompiled libraries, and the native source code for them is not provided.
  • 3D WebView's native UWP plugins can't run in the editor, so a mock webview implementation is used by default while running in the editor. However, you can actually load and render real web content in the editor by also installing 3D WebView for Windows and macOS into the project.
  • Compatible with both Hololens 1 and 2.
  • Currently, when a text input is focused on Hololens, no blinking text caret appears. However, the text caret appears when running on desktop.
  • When not running in Native 2D Mode, the web rendering frame rate of the UWP plugin is relatively slow (<10 FPS) due to UWP limitations.
  • When not running in Native 2D Mode, the UWP plugin's support for hover and drag interactions has limitations.
  • The UWP plugin supports transparent webviews on desktop but not on Hololens.
  • The UWP plugin embeds PDF.js from Mozilla, so you must display a copy of its included Apache 2.0 license in your UWP app's about page or credits.
  • All other files are licensed under the Vuplex Commercial Library License.
