Microsoft Outings Comes to Windows Mixed Reality

Posted on November 2, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Windows, Windows 10 with 2 Comments

Ever heard of Microsoft Outings? No? It’s an app made by the company’s Microsoft Garage lab that allows you to discover cities, historical sites, and other outdoor activities.

The app has so far only been available on Android and iOS devices, and it’s now coming to a different platform today: virtual reality. The app is now available for Windows Mixed Reality headsets (via WalkingCat). Although you can download and install the app on your Windows 10 device, it won’t actually work unless you run it through your Windows Mixed Reality headset.

The app itself has been updated for a virtual reality environment on Windows Mixed Reality as well. From the screenshots, it seems like you can easily switch between different cities and places that you can visit, and even get a virtual, 3D look at the area. The app definitely doesn’t look anything out of this world, so don’t expect to get blown away.

    I wonder when some enterprising company will be all-in on providing virtualized excursions to places, both faraway and near? T'would seem a sure thing. But then, I've been a proponent of virtualized everything for quite some time now. Much more my cup of tea than games, per se. What would people pay to plug into a roller coaster ride in VR, and ride as often as you want, for a buck a shot? Each time, real time (That can be the motto).
