The build also contained some many improvements for Windows Mixed Reality which the company is working on and should be made available this Spring when the company releases the Spring Creators Update to general public.

The Preview Build 17115 includes a new environment “Skyloft” which can be used to customize and expand the users Mixed Reality experience. The company has also added motion controllers for SteamVR games which improve the performance of the SteamVR games with significantly using lower video RAM usage.

The Mixed Reality Portal on desktop has also received performance improvements to the live video preview. Users will also be able to take mixed reality photos directly from the controller by just holding the Windows button and tapping on the trigger. This option works across apps but not for content which is protected by DRM.

For an optimized experience Microsoft has also updated the automatic performance settings and also added a new setting which will help you to override the default in Settings. You would need to go to Settings>Mixed Reality>Headset display.

For users to enjoy and test the Mixed Reality improvements, they would need to have a compatible PC and you can check if your PC is compatible by downloading the Windows Mixed Reality PC Check app available on the Microsoft Store.

All the Mixed Reality improvements released in this build and upcoming features if any requested by Windows 10 users will be included in the upcoming Spring Creators Update which is expected to be released in Spring for general public. If you are interested to see more features and improvements for Mixed Reality you can let Microsoft know about it through the Feedback Hub.
