Microsoft HoloLens windows 10 april update

Microsoft HoloLens users are getting all cozy and excited as the Windows 10 April 2018 Update is on its way to them bringing lots of great new features. The update consists of enterprise-focused features that target IT admins, developers and commercial HoloLens customers.

New features targeted at IT admins

The update will improve the IT admins’ ability to provision, secure, manage and update all the HoloLens devices in their organization. These include even scenarios in which more users use the same device. The update also brings enhanced support for Unified Endpoint Management solutions such as Microsoft Intune. This way, IT admins will easily automate device management.

New features targeted at developers

Developers are getting essential improvements aimed at spatial mapping, automatic selection of focus point to improve hologram stability, brand new holographic projection modes and APIs for helping developers in creating their apps.

A pretty impressive new feature will be the research mode that will allow developers to access key HoloLens sensors when they’re building academic and industrial apps in order to test their ideas in the field on computer and robotics.

New features targeted at end customers

The update uses AI to implement features such as auto-placement of new content 2D or 3D on launch. In other words, users will be able to enter mixed-reality experiences seamlessly. There’s also a new ability to fluidly maneuver apps when you want to move, resize and rotate 2D or 3D content without having to enter the adjust mode.

The update also simplifies space management for holograms and enhances the immersive spatial audio. This means that you’ll get the great chance of better hearing the HoloLens in noisier environments and experience lifelike sounds from apps. Their sounds will be obscured by the real walls that are detected by the device.

We recommend that you go over Microsoft’s complete official notes to find out more about what this update brings for the HoloLens.
