MacOS support is important not just for MacOS development but for iOS development. iOS development must be done on a Mac and so we use Unity on macOS to develop our games. We can't use Playfab Party because when we run the game in the Unity editor, there are no runtime DLLs for macOS and so it just doesn't work. Having to build, deploy and run on device (or simulator) kills iteration time and you miss out on the development and debugging benefits of the Unity editor while testing.
Unfortunately, as a result, we can't use Party for iOS games or any other platform because we all develop on macs. If iOS is supported, then macOS should be supported as well even if just for the sake of the developers.
Agreed.. my entire studio uses macs for development and this issue is one of the reasons to avoid adopting PlayFab.

Would love this to be supported.
PlayFab Party has recently shipped C++ SDKs for Linux and macOS platforms.
