Microsoft will soon update its HoloLens 2 headset to Windows 11. The update will be available free of charge and Microsoft says it will be rolled out at the end of June as an optional upgrade.

HoloLens 2 owners can continue to use Windows 10. However, it is unclear why one would want to do that, as Windows 11 will offer better app performance and some important developer-focused additions.

With the update, Microsoft is providing developers access to its Edge WebView2 control so they can embed HTML, CSS, and JavaScript in their apps. This should improve web-driven apps. The same technology is used for Microsoft Teams, which is updated from its current Electron app.

“This is a significant update for highly confidential facilities looking to enforce stricter access controls around systems and information deployed on HoloLens 2,” says Seiler. “Companies can better prevent unauthorized access to confidential information and highly sensitive data.”
