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.

Sharing holograms between HoloLens and smartphone

Hi everyone,
I would like to establish a communication between HoloLens and a smartphone, so that I can see the holograms in the smartphone and interact with them (and possibly exchanging other data between the devices). Does the sharing module of the toolkit allow me to do that, or is there another way without designing the whole thing from scratch?

  • Thank you, I'm taking a look. I hope there is the possibility to interact with the holograms (if I understood well with spectator view I can only see them), or at least the possibility to send some commands from the smartphone to the HoloLens device.
