Despite all the drama surrounding Microsoft’s HoloLens product line in recent memory, those who own the pricey headset can still expect new OS updates just yet. Windows Holographic has just upgraded to version 22H1, which you can grab now.
As for the new treats you can expect in 22H1, here’s the scoop:

- Single App Kiosk Policy for Launching Other Apps: Allows the launch of a secondary app. (IT administrators)
- Power and Thermal SDK for Apps: Allows apps to adapt to reduce thermal impact. (Developers)
As you can see there is a little something for everyone there. And you’ll get the February updates with 22H1, which include Mobile Platform Mode (MPM) switchable via settings, MPM SDK, and customizable start gesture settings. You can see the full list of additions in Microsoft Release Notesbut those are the big things.
At the micro level, take advantage of the HoloLens update. But be sure to also read about recent HoloLens developments for the macro perspective. Although Microsoft released positive news about HoloLens 2 around the same time, there have been recent reports that HoloLens 3 has been cancelled.
Additionally, it is said that Microsoft’s deal with the US military for military-friendly HoloLens variants is not going as well as either party hopes. And to top it off, it looks like Microsoft is losing some of its experts to rival companies, including Meta, the birthplace of the metaverse.
