Official HoloLens Companion app will let you stream video to your PC

Microsoft has an official HoloLens Companion app available for Windows 10. This new app enables those who will be picking up the smart headgear from Microsoft to perform various functions using their PC, including the ability to stream video from the HoloLens.

As spotted by WalkingCat on Twitter, the HoloLens Companion app allows you to connect your HoloLens over Wi-Fi to download media, control and view a live stream from the device itself or even remotely launch apps.

You can grab the app by hitting the link below, but you'll be disappointed unless you have a HoloLens at hand. Pre-orders for the HoloLens are expected to be kicking off today for a March 30 launch.
