Lates Update to Windows 10 Mixed Reality brings New Environment, haptic feedback, improved performance in SteamVR game, and more.

In a recent update to Windows 10 Insider, Microsoft has rolled out some major updates to Mixed Reality. All these will be rolled out with the next major update which is due next month.

  • A brand-new environment, Skyloft for you to customize and expand your MR experience. You can navigate there by selecting Places on the Mixed Reality Start menu.

  • As requested, we’ve added haptic feedback to the motion controllers for SteamVR games!

  • We’ve improved performance in SteamVR games with significantly lower video RAM usage. We’ve also improved the performance of live video preview in the Mixed Reality Portal on desktop

  • You can now take mixed reality photos directly from your controller by holding the Windows button and then tapping the trigger. This works across environments and apps except for capturing content protected with DRM.

  • The automatic performance settings have been updated to provide an optimized experience, and we’ve added a new setting to override the default in Settings > Mixed Reality > Headset display.

  • Setup now provides more detailed information about common compatibility issues with USB3.0 controllers and graphics cards.

  • Many more improvements that the team has been hard at work on!

Overall it’s a great update as it shows Microsoft’s commitment towards MR, and should make both OEMs and Consumers happy!
