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.

How to launch skype from another hololens application through script

Hi guys! I have read a question similar to this one, but years ago. I just want to know if there is now an option or some code to put in my Unity app to run Skype from HoloLens.
I have tried putting the uri by code, but it only works on my PC, not on my HoloLens. It just exit my App and I have to open Skype manually, so it is not the thing I really want.
Anyone knows what to do?


  • My only thought would be to make sure you are on the latest Hololens OS build as I thought they were supposed to fix it. That said, I haven't heard of anyone saying this was fixed so my guess is its still not working.


  • Hey, Did you find any solution, how to open Skype from any other apps on HoloLens?
