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.

Is that possible to install an app for Android( .apk) in Hololens?

I want to use Hololens as a monitor for the drone (DJI phantom4 ) instead of any pad, so I need to use the app DJI GO 4 from DJI first.



  • It isn't possible. The HoloLens runs a version of Windows 10.

  • @james_ashley thanks for replying, but I hope that will be another way to solve this problem, for example, transfer the apk. into the kind that fit hololens or install some dependency to use the apk.(ex. emulator)

  • Have you tried using VNCaster + VNC Client for Android?
