Last week, Microsoft introduced the new View Mixed Reality feature to the world. The new feature is now finally live, as it arrives with the latest Windows 10 Preview build 16273. However, it’s only available in Skip Ahead, which implies we’ll have it officially released with the major update that comes after  Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (Redstone 4).

So, what exactly is View Mixed Reality? This feature allows you to bring your 3D creations to the real world, by using your camera. You can use your own 3D models created in Paint 3D, or download pre-made ones from So, View Mixed Reality is really a light variation of what HoloLens does. 

Any camera can be used for projecting 3D objects with View Mixed reality, but of course, you’ll get the best experience on Surface devices.

Here’s what head of the Windows Insider Program, Dona Sarkar says about the feature:

“With this update, you will be able to bring your 3D content right in to your real world to spark brand new forms of expression. Take your own 3D models or those from and bring them into your space with View Mixed Reality… Combine these features with a wealth of community driven 3D models found on and you have the perfect canvas to let your imagination run wild. This update offers an integrated Remix experience, our native implementation allows users a single tap function to bring 3D models into View 3D.

Since this is the very first version of View Mixed Reality, expect a handful of bugs and glitches. At the end of the day, this is a feature that won’t be available to general public for at least seven months, so developers and Insiders have a long way of developing and testing ahead of them.
