Audacity on 10.15 Catalina

Hello everyone, I am hoping someone can help me. I tried to open Audacity on my new MacBook Pro running Catalina 10.15.6 software bit I just get the message that the app needs to be updated. Please contact developer. I’ve tried looking around on the web site but no clue. There must be an easier way. If anyone could let me know, I would be extremely grateful. Thank you.

Moderator note: I split this off into a new topic as it did not relate to the original thread that it was tacked on to.

The current version of Audacity runs on Catalina 10.15. You can download it here:

Thanks, Since I can’t open 2.1.30 from my applications folder. Can I just download the newest version or will that cause any issues with the prior version just sitting there?

To install Audacity you just drag the program to your Applications folder. It will replace the old version. Just follow the instructions here.
