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.

WebView in Unity and HoloLens

edited November 2016 in Questions And Answers

I am looking for a WebView solution inside my HoloLens app, we need to display a map from a custom web based solution in the 3D view along side other uGUI dialogs..

Any ideas or a ready Asset Store solution?



  • Hi, I am asking myself the same question. I want to display a webapp as UI inside Hololens 3D view but none of the webview solutions I found on the asset store is working with UWP.

  • Unfortunately there is no easy answer for this at the moment. The closest one would be the Awesomium plugin but that is not free and does not currently work under UWP. You can read more about that here. The easiest solution is to pop up the system browser, but that has the user leave your experience which is not ideal.

  • Hi,

    Do you have any updates on this? How to show a webView inside a holographic app session?
