Microsoft is adding and changing around a few things regarding Windows Mixed Reality (WMR) in Windows 10's next feature update, codenamed "19H1", which brings with it updated user interfaces and a larger emphasis on WebVR content. This build is expected to launch this coming April.

In the latest 19H1 Insider builds, WMR features an updated user interface that introduces more hover-based elements in the Start menu and title bars of apps. This could be our first hint at the UI design that will ship on HoloLens 2, which is rumored to be announced later this year.

In addition, the WMR house has also been updated with new objects, with old apps like Groove being replaced with something more useful. Also, there appears to be a bit more focus on WebVR content, with new objects that feature web content that can be used in immersive mode supported in Edge.

Make sure you check out our hands-on video above and let us know your thoughts on the new changes coming to WMR in Windows 10 19H1.
