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.

  • We also have a massive interest in retaining the Skype video feed when in other applications. Ideally we'd like to be able to use the annotation toolkit too :)

    Happy to help test to make it happen!

    I hope @mobilewhatelse have achieved the calling facility. Please share the status on the same.

  • We would really like to be able to use the annotation toolkit too or some sort of API to send additional data trough Skype.

  • We hope this to be available soon! The thyssenkrupp Elevator Hololens app is great, and it's what many developers are looking to do with Skype.

  • Cortana voice command "call contact" open skype and start a call. Is there any way to invoke the cortana command by code?

  • The thyssenkrupp Elevator Hololens app is great, and it's what many developers are looking to do with Skype. So how we can achieve skapy call.

    Thanks for the thyssenkrupp Elevator Service Technician demo video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8OWhGiyR4Ns&feature=youtu.be

    I want to achieve similar skype integration with annotation and screen sharing as demonstrated in the video.

    How to achieve that. Please share some thoughts on this.

    I am also looking for the same answer. Do anybody discover anything around that?
