Windows Holographic 24H1 brings significant improvements to HoloLens 2

Microsoft has just rolled out the latest version of Windows Holographic, version 24H1, and it’s packed with a lot of exciting features for professionals. They were designed to make the HoloLens 2 even more intuitive and user-friendly, especially for those in the workplace.

For those who are not familiar, the Windows Holographic is the software that powers Microsoft’s mixed reality headpiece, HoloLens 2. Let’s dive into what makes this release stand out and how it’s set to revolutionize the way we interact with mixed reality.

What’s new with the Windows Holographic 24H1 update?

First off, the introduction of shared Microsoft Entra accounts is a game-changer. Imagine being able to pick up any HoloLens 2 device, click a single sign-in button, and jump straight into your work. This feature is perfect for environments where devices are shared among multiple users, streamlining access to corporate resources and significantly reducing downtime.

For IT Admins, the update brings a sigh of relief with new policies that simplify device management. Whether it’s controlling user access when the device wakes up from a suspended state or scheduling device maintenance, these policies are designed to keep things running smoothly without constant oversight.

Network connectivity issues can be a major headache, especially when you’re relying on cloud services to get the job done. The addition of a network connectivity report to Offline Diagnostics is like having a diagnostic wizard at your fingertips, ready to pinpoint and solve connectivity issues so you can get back to work without skipping a beat.

Microsoft also brought some improvements to the Intune app update experience and eye tracking calibration. These enhancements ensure that your apps are always up to date and that your device understands your gaze with pinpoint accuracy.

Lastly, the update introduces policies to set device standby actions, giving admins even more control over how the HoloLens 2 behaves in different scenarios. It’s about making the device work for you, not the other way around.

Whether you’re an IT Admin, a frontline worker, or just a tech enthusiast, there’s something in this update for you. What do you think about the Windows Holographic 24H1 update? Let us now in the comments below.
