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.

SpatialGestureRecognizer not working on 17134

Hi Forum

I have a simple 2D app (originally for phone and desktop) for flying a bluetooth quadcopter. I added gesture support for HoloLens and the app works fine on 14393. I just upgraded my device to 17134 and my OnInteractionDetected callback is not firing anymore. I've also verified this on the emulators ( works on 14393 and not 17134).

I don't see any documented changes in behavior in the gesture recognizer -- is it still supported for ordinary, non-exclusive UWP apps on 17134?

The entire source for my project is here:


  • I've been unsuccessful in my debugging. Can GestureRecognizer still be used in ordinary 2D apps on windows 1803 and beyond?
