According to recent reports, Microsoft has announced that the HoloLens 2 VR headset will receive a free update with Windows 11 in the first half of 2023.
The company is said to be focusing on enhancing the mixed-reality device’s immersive and security capabilities, particularly in the industrial sector. The update is expected to provide significant benefits for industries such as manufacturing, healthcare, and automotive that run on the HoloLens 2 platform.
Robin Seiler, COO and corporate vice president of Windows and devices at Microsoft, highlighted the device’s success in industrial settings and stated that the update would offer continuous platform support. This means that organizations will receive monthly security servicing updates to safeguard sensitive data and improve application performance.
With these updates, the HoloLens 2 is expected to become an even more powerful tool for frontline workers in various industrial settings, such as factories, service locations, and supply chain warehouses. Information and data sharing in the office or in a remote work team will be far more secure too.
