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.

Can an Edge browser be shared to multiple HoloLens?

edited February 2018 in Questions And Answers

I'm fairly new to HoloLens development so I apologize if this has a simple answer. I would like two HoloLens be able to view the same Edge browser window simultaneously.

From my impression it seems that an app must have a spatial anchor and sharing turned on in order for others to view the same holograph.

Does the native Edge browser include this functionality? If not, how would I go about to achieve this?

  • Hi,

    Did you find a solution to your problem ?

    I'm having the same problem, I'd like to share the position in 3D space of a browser. For users to see it in the same place.

    I understand that 2D applications (such as Edge) do not use spatial coordinates like 3D holograms, which made it difficult (if not impossible) to share a position :

    For the moment I'm thinking of streaming my web page directly in unity ...
    But I imagine that there are more interesting ways ?

    If anyone has an idea of solution ? :)

    Thanks in advance

  • @Buck no luck on my end. From my understanding it appears that HoloLens simply does not support web browsers inside of Unity. Although a static web page or video could be placed as an object texture.

    Have you made any progress? Does the Edge browser have default functionality for a shared experience or must it be placed inside an application?
