Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

    Hi @josecarloses,

    One of the ways to detect your smartphone can be done using QR codes. You can generate a QR code in your Android app in order to obtain both the port and IP address scanning it with HoloLens. Depending on what you want to do with your application you can use TCP/IP or UDP protocol. There are some examples on the internet using both protocols and QR code to be used on HoloLens, therefore, check out the forum to find information related to it.

    I hope this information can help you to do what you want.

    Regards,
    Cristian.
