Multipass on Apple M1 based computers

Hi all!
What’s the status of multipass on MacOS for Apple M1 based computers?

Hi @diogoconstantino, we don’t have it on the immediate roadmap, but hoping to get on it in the next cycle.

I have installed Multipass on my MacBook Air , version 1.81+mac all seems well. Issues so far , no multiple terminals , disk size is small.
used Multipass -disk 20G argument to increase the disk size.

I installed it and it works but…

Invalid setting 'local.driver=hyperkit': Invalid driver

Any idea why I cannot set hyperkit as current driver?

@apagiaro only the qemu driver is supported on the M1. hyperkit will be deprecated altogether in due time, as qemu does a bunch of things better:
