Good stuff to know. If you don’t wish to make your own though, you can add one from the bundled script: extra objects. ( round cube ).

Just be aware that if you add a sub-d modifier on an quad sphere, you won’t get a sphere (i.e. you need another cast modifier) and the shading around the 8 original cube’s corners will be noticeably off the more sub-d levels you have.

Or use Extra Object (meshes) addon: round cube radius =1, Arc Divisions as you need…

And that can be fixed using To Sphere (Alt-Shift-S) and supplying 1.0 as the parameter.
