Microsoft’s HoloLens recently received a completely new update. According to the company’s own statements, it has taken user feedback into account in order to make the Hololens 2 easier to use in everyday life and to adapt it more to user needs.
Compared to its predecessor, the Microsoft HoloLens 2 offers a much larger field of view, significantly improved wearing comfort and improved use. This will be expanded even further with the update!
Probably the most noticeable new feature is the Edge browser, which is now also available for the Hololens, making it possible to access the Internet. The new AR browser now makes it possible to install apps from the Microsoft Store and use them on the Hololens. Examples of this are Office applications in particular, but also SharePoint and OneDrive. Microsoft is thus moving strongly in the direction of collaboration.
In addition, the topic of Web XR plays a role. WebXR is an open standard for augmented reality and virtual reality glasses developed by a consortium of Google, Microsoft and Mozilla.
There are only small changes, but they make the headset much more usable than it was in the past and should especially focus on remote work and usability.
What changes would you like to see in the Hololens? Feel free to write it in the comments!
