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.

Sending data from the Hololens to an android/iphone app and via versa?

edited July 2017 in Questions And Answers

Good evening !

Is it possible to send data from an android/iphone app to an Hololens programm ? I just imagined an peer to peer connection between both devices.

My HoloLens programm is very simple, i currently have a cube like table hologram, where i can place things on. Is it possible that an unity made android/iphone app sends data ( strings ) to the HoloLens while my programm is running ? I thought it would be an cool idea if an other person could select by using an app, which item is displayed on the table.

So is it possible to send strings from the app to the hololens programm ?

Thanks for your help !

    Have a look at unitys UNet which is for multiplayer and networking. The high level api is pretty easy to understand and set up very quickly.

  • Alright thanks guys !

    I already thought about UNet, but the problem is that its mainly for multiplayer support with game lobbys and stuff like that ^^.
