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.

Use this forum to ask questions and get help with the HoloLens RS4 Preview. Our support team and engineers are here to help!



  • Just installed and the UI changes look great

  • Awesome! One question. With the MTP Support, will it be possible to connect an external device to Hololens (like an RGB camera). thanks

    I would be interested, why RS4 still seems to have no language packs for Speech recognition and Text-to-speech made available. (Don't need Display language and Handwriting). It sounds like such a straightforward thing to do to work for customers outside the US. It seems more a packaging than a software development problem? (Using Cognitive Services is no solution - latency, and network connection requirement).
    What is really blocking it? It is a significant adoption blocker outside the US as English speech recognition is not working well for many speakers (even with simple keywords).

    Can somebody explain what 'Holographic reprojection modes' means in a practical sense? As HoloLens developers obviously better stability is always a good thing. Do we just set this to HolographicReprojectionMode.OrientationOnly and get the benefit. Or are there trade-offs that we need to be aware of.

  • Hey everyone, please ask these questions as "questions" in the forum category we created, and not as comments on this announce. Our engineers and support folks won't see the questions here :-)
