    To see a webpage inside a Unity app, you would need to embed a WebView. There are several Unity plugins that accomplish this, but I some of them were not working in UWP apps. YMMV

    If you are OK switching out of your Unity app into a web browser, you could call Application.OpenURL() API, which would normally launch a web browser on desktop, but I haven't tried this on HoloLens yet.

  • Hello ContextVR,
    I was wondering if you could possibly share the Unity plugins that are able to embed a WebView for a UWP application? Most of the Unity WebView assets I have found have been for Android and iOS.
