A fast and fluid experience, for everyone

We’re moving Visual Studio for Mac to native macOS UI, which will fix over 100 previously reported issues related to performance, reliability, and product quality. By using native macOS UI, the IDE now works more reliably with macOS’s built in assistive technologies. In this first preview release, we’re giving you a glimpse at the IDE and focused on main features .NET developers use to build applications for the web.

A modern .NET IDE hand-tailored for the Mac

Experience a new look and feel in Visual Studio for Mac that combines the updated look and feel of macOS with the productive experience you’ve come to know and love in Visual Studio.

A more familiar experience for Visual Studio users

Updates to menus and terminology across the IDE make the experience more consistent between Mac and Windows. You’ll have an easier time following tutorials written for Windows and using your existing muscle memory to find options. We’re also bringing the new Git experience from Visual Studio to the Mac! We’re starting the process by introducing the Git Changes tool window.
