Windows 10 build 15048 has been released to insiders just a few days ago. It appears that Microsoft has already started to include references to and even a portal for Windows Mixed Reality in its latest operating system update.
Mixed Reality Portal In Windows 10 Build 15048
According to Hot Hardware, when Microsoft released its latest 15048 build of Windows 10 to its Insiders, the main updates seemed to be overall polish and bug fixes. However, the Windows 10 build includes something more exciting than that. The unexpected cool treat is a mixed reality portal and demo.
The new mixed reality feature follows news that Microsoft will create the third iteration of HoloLens, skipping HoloLens V2. It is also rumored that that Scorpio and Xbox One will provide mixed-reality headset support by 2018.
According to Beta News, Microsoft has made reference to Windows Holographic in Windows 10 before, but this is the first time that users get to experience a demo. The release coincides with Microsoft revealing that the new name for Windows Holographic is Windows Mixed Reality. The latest Windows 10 build gives Insiders the chance to try out a Windows Mixed reality simulation.
