Hololens sharing get host list


I've been through several topics about sharing experience on Hololens and I couldn't find any solution.
I'm trying to find a way to be able to choose on which Hololens host I get connected.
The Mixed Reality 240 tutorial required to specify the host IP before build.

Is there any way to get a list of IPs/Hosts currently availables and connect to one of it from the app ?




  • @Fabien_C the updated Mixed Reality Toolkit SharingWithUnet example scene already has this functionality. I would suggest looking there.

  • @dbarrett thanks for the answer !
    My project is on Unity 2017.1 and I'd like to keep it this way. SharingWithUnet scripts use UnityEngine.XR and its only available since 2017.2. I there no other way ?

    SharingWithUnet works fine with 2017.1. The MRTK works for both VR namespace and XR namespace. Just get the most up-to-date version.
