Microsoft HoloLens owners can now install apps with just their voice

A new update to the Windows Store for the Microsoft HoloLens allows owners of the augmented reality headset to navigate through the store and even install apps with just their voice.

This new feature, which was revealed via the official HoloLens Twitter page (via MSPU) was actually set up first as part of the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, where Microsoft added voice tags for various windowed commands. With this new update, that has now been extended to the Windows Store. This now allows HoloLens owners to "hover" in front of a store app listing and then say that app's name to open it up. Voice commands can also be used to install those apps, without having to use any of the HoloLens "pinch" finger controls.

If you want to try this out for yourself, you can purchase the Microsoft HoloLens Developer Edition from the Microsoft Store site for a mere $3,000.
