Microsoft’s Windows Mixed Reality platform is getting a new environment this Spring with the new Redstone 4 update. These environments are much like a home screen of an operating system, where you can open apps, access the start screen, etc.
So far, Windows Mixed Reality only had one environment: the Cliff House. But with the new Redstone 4 update coming this Spring, Microsoft is introducing a new Skyloft environment in a city. The Cliff House and Skyloft environments are completely different from each other, with the latter providing a modern city environment.
Along with the new Skyloft environment, Microsoft is bringing some other improvements to Windows Mixed Reality. The update will bring support for haptic feedback to the Windows Mixed Reality motion controllers for SteamVR games, and Microsoft is also packing improvements in performance. Microsoft also now lets users take mixed reality photos using these controllers in any app or game which is also going to be quite handy once Redstone 4 starts rolling out to the public. If you are a Windows Insider, however, you can get these updates today with build 17115.
