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.

Does the Hololens come with a mic input and audio output?

  • @DavidKlineMS Thanks for sharing the link.

    I just checked it out and don't see anything for mic audio inputs. :neutral:

  • Are you looking to access the HoloLens mic and record something to playback through the speakers?

    Holograms 212 - Voice has a section that briefly walks through recording a message.

  • @AR123,
    Under Sensors, the doc says "4 microphones".

    Thanks!

    sorta, I'm thinking more about setting up a microphone for potential use in pro audio studios.

  • Hey @AR123, did you ever find a solution for this?

    @AR123,

    Yes, HoloLens has four microphones, a set of speakers and a headphone jack.

    This page describes the hardware.

    Thanks!

    Does the headphone jack also support mic line in?

  • In place fixed the hardware documentation link. Including it here as well.

    I do not believe the headphone jack also supports mic in, I will double check.

    Thanks!

    The Hololens development edition does not have or support mic line in. You have to rely on the built-in mic.

    Hi, is there a way to get audio output feedback ?
    My goal is to get a message like "Room Saved" after let's say saving the room mesh.

    EDIT: Once again I have found what to use after writing my question.
    There is a TextToSpeech script in the holotoolkit which seems appropriate for my design.
