Hey there, it's Kris from Synty, and today I'm excited to guide you through the hassle-free process of importing Unity Asset Store packages into your Unity project using the Package Manager.

This nifty technique streamlines the integration of diverse assets, making it a breeze for developers to elevate their projects. Let's jump into the step-by-step guide.

Step 2: Loading Packages from the Asset Store

Another option is to open the Package Manager. In Unity 2022.3, find it under "Window" > "Package Manager." The look might vary a bit in newer versions, but the functionality remains the same.
