The HoloLens team is listening to feedback from developers in the Windows Insider Program to prioritize our work. Please continue to give us feedback through the Feedback Hub, the developer forums and Twitter via @HoloLens. As Windows 10 embraces the Anniversary Update, the HoloLens team is happy to deliver further improve to the holographic experience. In this update, we focused on major fixes, improvements, and introducing features requested by businesses and available in the Microsoft HoloLens Commercial Suite.
Latest release: Windows Holographic August 2016 Update (10.0.14393.0, Windows 10 Anniversary Release)
To update to the current release, open the Settings app, go to Update & Security, then select the Check for updates button.
Attach To Process Debugging
HoloLens now supports attach-to-process debugging. You can use Visual Studio 2015 Update 3 to connect to a running app on a HoloLens and start debugging it. This works without the need to deploy from a Visual Studio project.
Updated HoloLens Emulator
We've also released an updated version of the HoloLens Emulator.
You can now pair and use Bluetooth gamepads with HoloLens! The newly released Xbox Wireless Controller S features Bluetooth capabilities and can be used to play your favorite gamepad-enabled games and apps. A controller update must be applied before you can connect the Xbox Wireless Controller S with HoloLens. The Xbox Wireless Controller S is supported by XInput and Windows.Gaming.Input APIs. Additional models of Bluetooth controllers may be accessed through the Windows.Gaming.Input API.
We are in sync with the rest of the Windows 10 Anniversary update, so in addition to the Hololens specific fixes, you are also receiving all the goodness from the Windows update to increase platform reliability and performance. Your feedback is highly valued and prioritized for fixes in the release.
The Microsoft HoloLens Commercial Suite is ready for enterprise deployment. We've added several highly requested commercial features from our early business partners.
