Microsoft has confirmed that it will begin rolling out the official April 2018 update for HoloLens (version 1803) in just a couple of weeks on June 26. This means that starting June 26, users using HoloLens will be able to head to Windows Update and download the latest release just like you can on a Windows 10 PC.
Microsoft has been testing the April 2018 update for HoloLens with Insiders for several weeks now, and the final build can already be installed on HoloLens via the Windows Device Recovery Tool. Unfortunately, installing the release early does require you to wipe your device clean, which is why many have been waiting for the official release on Windows Update.
Now we know the wait won't be much longer, with June 26 just around the corner. HoloLens hasn't received any major feature updates since the Windows 10 Anniversary Update for HoloLens back in 2016, so it's been a long time coming. The April 2018 update for HoloLens is packing lots of notable new changes, including the following:
- Auto-placement of 2D and 3D Content on launch
- Fluid app animation
- 2D app horizontal resize with reflow
- Expanded voice command support
- Updated Holograms and Photos apps
- Improved mixed reality capture
- Improved audio immersion
- File Explorer
- MTP support
- Captive portal network support during setup
There are plenty more changes for developers too, and you can head to this link for a full changelog from Microsoft. Make sure you check out our hands on with the April update for HoloLens. Will you be downloading the April 2018 update on your HoloLens on June 26? Let us know in the comments!
