Hello everyone.

The Mixed Reality Forums here are no longer being used or maintained.

There are a few other places we would like to direct you to for support, both from Microsoft and from the community.

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.

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, or in our Microsoft Tech Communities forums at https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/mixed-reality/ct-p/MicrosoftMixedReality.

And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

Can my UWP Web App use WebVR for Mixed Reality Support

I have an application that works with Mixed Reality Headsets using WebVR 1.1 in Edge. I've ported that application into the Windows Store as a UWP application (essentially just the HTML/CSS/JS web content and a manifest, bundled into an APPX). Since the application is displayed using an embedded Edge browser, I was hoping that the Mixed Reality Headset might "just work." Unfortunately, it "just doesn't." The code sees WebVR API support, so my app puts up the goggles icon, but when I click it, nothing happens.

You can find the web version of this application at m.kaon.com/c/gc (since WebVR cannot change pages right now, and Mixed Reality Controllers aren't available yet, there's not a ton you can do with it yet; I recommend going into a 3D model, then clicking the goggles).

The same application can be found if you search for "GP PRO" on the Windows Store.

Is it worth my trouble to try to make this work, or is WebVR in a UWP Web App not really supported yet?

    Hey @Joshua - I sent this over to one of the members of the MS WebVR team. I am hoping they will be able to give us a good answer. I'll let you know if/when I hear back.

    Any update on this? I just updated the app to include support for WMR motion controllers, and was hoping that maybe with the SDK update it might start working, but it doesn't.
