Microsoft updates HoloLens and Windows Holographic to work better with 'flat' apps

Mark Hachman | June 1, 2016
Everyday, 2D software applications are still the reality for most users, whether on HoloLens or a traditional display.

With the new May update, users can more easily navigate through virtual space by using the Cortana virtual assistant and Microsoft’s new commands:

  • Looking at a hologram and rotate it by saying “Face me”
  • Changing its size by saying “Bigger” / “Smaller”
  • Moving an app by saying “Hey Cortana, move [App Name] here."

Microsoft said it will provide the new version of Windows 10 Holographic in much the same way you receive Windows 10 updates: through the updates section of the Settings. Currently, HoloLens is available to developers only; the company hasn’t released a formal timetable for when it will release a version for consumers.
