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.

How to make a phone call on hololens

Hi everyone,
I will soon start working on an app for Hololens with Unity, and as the title stated it, I want to be able to make a phone call from it. I'm not allowed to open an other application outside of the one we're developing (but inside is ok).

We first headed to Skype. I didn't find anything about launching Skype inside our application (I'm not the only one struggling with it, and it looks like it's impossible), so I was thinking about embedding a web page into our application, which will display the online Skype page. But all the solutions I found were about XAML, and we're not using it at all. Is there any solution without using an UWP project ?

In case It's not possible, I started looking for a classical phone call. I know you can connect a device to your Hololens, so the question is : Can you connect your phone, and use the PhoneCallTask class(for Windows phone) via your Hololens application ?

I did not try anything, because I don't have access to the project yet (Not until next Monday), So the only thing I can do is search and compile information.

Thanks in advance.
