Scratch Link is a downloadable program that enables Scratch 3.0 to connect to and control devices in the physical world. It was developed by the Scratch Team for use with such devices as EV3. Scratch projects can access these devices using extensions. Like Scratch, Scratch Link is free software (provided under the BSD license.) Scratch Link requires macOS 10.10 (Yosemite) or later or Windows 10 version 1709 (Fall Creators Update) or later.

It can be downloaded directly from the Scratch Website for both operating systems, or it can be installed from the Microsoft Store (Windows) or the App Store (macOS).
