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.

Sharing a hologram with other HoloLens users?

Hello, I have a feature request for the 3D viewer beta. I was wondering if it would be possible for a user to share their hologram of a loaded model with other users, so multiple people can view the same object simultaneously.

At the NIH, we are using the 3D viewer beta to display molecular models derived from crystallographic data. It would be exceptionally valuable if two or more researchers could view and interact with the same object simultaneously. I think this feature would add a lot of value for everyone, so we can discuss the models we have loaded!

Thanks for your consideration.


  • I would be very interested in this feature as well. We are currently using this app to view 3D anatomic models and would love to have multiple Hololens see the same thing.
