After introducing Remote Assist and Layout in early May, Microsoft has made these available for free preview starting yesterday, May 22. It is a limited-time free offer that you can get from Microsoft Store.

The company is as well set to bring the Windows 10 April 2018 update to HoloLens, and it packs important updates for developers, IT administrators, and commercial HoloLens customers. The new features will be made available within the coming weeks.

Microsoft LayoutMicrosoft Remote Assist is a HoloLens app that provides users with collaborative remote activities like heads-up, image sharing, hands-free video calling, and mixed reality annotations. As for Microsoft Layout will help users use HoloLens to bring space designs from concept to completion faster by viewing the designs at real-world scale and size.

ZF Group, a German car-parts manufacturer, has worked with Microsoft using Remote Assist and Layout for the past few months. The partnership has provided these apps with insights for daily usage. Microsoft shared a video in its blog to show ZF’s works in its factory.

The Windows 10 April ‘18 update brings improved support for Unified Endpoint Management solutions (MDM) for IT admins to ‘simplify and automate device management.’ This will help them provide, secure, manage, and update all HoloLens devices.

For integrating the solutions across diverse environments and platforms, Microsoft partnered with MDM providers like IBM MaaS360, SOTI, and Mobilelron. They will be delivering the solutions to the market soon enough.

Thanks to the Win10 update, developers, on the other hand, will get improvements in spatial mapping, new holographic projection modes, APIs for tailoring apps, and automatic selection of focus points for improving holograph stability; along with a new feature called Research Mode.
