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.

Mixed Reality units needed for QA


I am a QA Manager in one of the QA houses and we were looking into the possibility to test Mixed Reality applications. I have reviewed materials available online but still remain with some questions:

  • what type of hardware is needed to be able to perform QA on the app that is still being developed? Is there a way to start such app on the retail version of Mixed Reality Headset or will we need Development Edition of Immersive headset
  • Is it possible to connect the retail unit to Windows Device Portal by enabling the development mode (similarly to Xbox One)?
