Wizards Unite 2.8.0 Release Notes are Live!

Wizards Unite Daily Update Analysis

Harry Potter: Wizards Unite has just released a new update, Version 2.8.0. At time of writing this, however, Android users are experiencing a bug with the new update. I encourage you to wait before updating to the latest version of Wizards Unite.

Wizards Unite Updates

Some of these updates are coming soon. They are not yet live in the game. Two of the features are live in the game, even if you haven’t updated to 2.8.0.


SOS Report

Coming soon! We will be adding an in-game newsletter to keep everyone up-to-date on events, game tips, and more!

Frosty Foundables

Get ready for an increase in Frosty Foundables on the map; coming in early January!


We have added a new Portkey option in the Settings menu that allows players to pan around Portkey environments without using their device’s gyroscope to move.


Players will now be able to grow Baneberry and Angel’s Trumpet Ingredients in Greenhouses! Additionally, Baneberry and Angel’s Trumpet seeds have also been added to the Map.

Note: This is already live in the game, without updating to Version 2.8.0.


We have improved Dawdle Draught so that when used, it will always prevent a Foundable from fleeing! Previously Dawdle Draught only improved your chances of preventing a Foundable from being whisked away by the magic. This update makes Dawdle Draught even more valuable for those Severe and Emergency Foundables.

Note: This is already live in the game, without updating to Version 2.8.0.

Known Issues in Wizards Unite

The HPWU developers know about the following issues. They’re working to fix them.

It is also a known issue that some players who have updated to Version 2.8.0 are experiencing the start button giving an error when players tap it to enter a Wizarding Challenge. We will update this post when that is resolved.


Foundables that are not from Encounters can sometimes have a high Seen number, even if they are not Seen in Encounters.

Foundables in Photo Mode may flip around when a player taps on the Foundable to reposition.

Occamy Eggs have the incorrect threat level when you enter the Encounter.


Players may receive an error when they attempt to collect a brewed Potion.


When collecting new Portmanteaus, the amount on the badge from a player’s Suitcase is incorrect, compared to the actual amount of new Portmanteaus.

Wizarding Challenges

Aurors Only: Defeating a Foe in a Wizarding Challenge with Bat-Bogey Hex does not count towards Wizarding Challenge Achievements.

Some players may receive an error message when attempting to enter a Wizarding Challenge. If this happens to you, this guide explains how to re-enter the Wizarding Challenge. If that doesn’t work, the same guide also explains how to recover your lost Runestone.

Players may notice that the number of players at a Chamber may not update immediately when other players join the same Chamber.
