Trenutna sudbina Windows Mixed Reality: Microsoft planira da ga ukloni u budućem izdanju sistema Windows

Microsoft has recently announced its decision to remove Windows Mixed Reality from future Windows releases, including the accompanying Mixed Reality Portal and Windows Mixed Reality for Steam VR. This move marks a significant change in direction, as the company had initially hoped to compete with the likes of HTC and Oculus (now Meta) in the virtual reality space.

Windows Mixed Reality was introduced by Microsoft in 2017, aiming to provide gamers access to various VR experiences and applications. Additionally, Microsoft partnered with major companies such as Acer, Dell, Lenovo, Asus, HP, and Samsung, enabling other manufacturers to develop Windows-compatible mixed reality headsets.

However, Microsoft has gradually scaled back its VR division. Allegations of inappropriate behavior against former HoloLens head Alex Kipman and subsequent layoffs of 10,000 employees influenced the company’s decision to shift its focus to other VR applications.

While Windows Mixed Reality will be removed from future Windows releases, Microsoft continues to make advancements in the VR world. The introduction of the Microsoft Mesh application allows users to gather in virtual spaces without the need for headsets. Moreover, through its partnership with Meta, Quest users can access Office applications and the Xbox Cloud Gaming platform.
