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.

    To see a webpage inside a Unity app, you would need to embed a WebView. There are several Unity plugins that accomplish this, but I some of them were not working in UWP apps. YMMV

    If you are OK switching out of your Unity app into a web browser, you could call Application.OpenURL() API, which would normally launch a web browser on desktop, but I haven't tried this on HoloLens yet.

  • Hello ContextVR,
    I was wondering if you could possibly share the Unity plugins that are able to embed a WebView for a UWP application? Most of the Unity WebView assets I have found have been for Android and iOS.
