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 ^^.
