Microsoft has informed HoloLens users that as part of its Windows release of October 10, 2018, Microsoft will begin introducing a mandatory update to HoloLens that will bring a number of new features and quality of life improvements to the headset.
The new features of the update are overridden by Miracast support, which allows HoloLens users to share their views for displays that support the Miracast protocol. The update also provides additional sharing options, such as Windows Nearby Sharing for sending captures to nearby Windows devices and a share button in Microsoft Edge.
In addition, the update includes a new quick action menu for easy access to frequently referenced system tasks such as starting and stopping Video capture and a new notification interface that allows users to view and respond to alerts just as they would on a PC.
Developers are also getting a new toy because the update enables the integration of mixed-reality capture for apps using the Windows Camera Capture interface and some code.
On the corporate side, the update improves management features so IT staff can bet better B. the ability to post-setup Use a runtime provisioning package for configurations and assign users to Azure Active Directory groups.
The October 10, 2010 Windows 10 update was introduced on October 2, and Microsoft paused the update to fix some important bugs, including data loss due to the installation of the update. However, this did not affect the RS5 insider build, so adventurers can now apply the updates before the mandatory update.
After a quiet year in 2017, Microsoft was relatively busy releasing HoloLens updates in 2018, with RS4 over in March with new features and improvements. Now, with a new HoloLens 2 device coming up next year, could be the last update until we see the new device.
