Open Site Shell vs Open Site SSH?

I just downloaded the latest Local app on a Mac running Catalina and when I make a new site the “Open Site SSH” is not available, I only have “Open Site Shell” as an option. How can I get the SSH option?

Because the new version no longer uses a Virtual Machine (VM) you don’t need to SSH into the VM. Instead, “open site shell” sets some vars and paths (I think) and opens a standard shell in your terminal.
