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.

WebVR - Entering VR from Edge WebView control hosted in UWP app

I'm attempting to run WebVR content in a UWP app running in Windows Mixed Reality. I have an Edge WebView control in a XAML UWP app. That control navigates to a page with WebVR content. The page initially renders correctly in my UWP app, and it allows me to pan around the VR scene in 2D, but when I click the "Enter VR" button on the page, nothing happens.

My expectation / hope is that this would behave like Edge, and if a Windows Mixed Reality headset is attached the page would render in an immersive view.

I've tested demos built using A-Frame and BabylonJS. Both work correctly in Edge, allowing the user to enter an immersive VR view, but neither work when running in an Edge WebView control.

Does the Edge WebView control support immersive WebVR content? If not, recommendations for launching into WebVR experiences from a UWP app, other than starting a new Edge instance?
