Latest Minecraft update adds Windows Mixed Reality support and Mixer integration

Mojang revealed two big announcements today pertaining to Minecraft on Windows 10. The first is that players can now view Minecraft in full 3D thanks to Windows Mixed Reality support being added to the game. Second, Mixer integration has left beta and is now available for everyone on Windows 10, iOS, and Android devices.

As Mojang states, the company already dabbled in VR support with Oculus Rift and Gear VR, but this will be the first time that players can experience Minecraft in Windows Mixed Reality. Manufacturers such as Samsung, Acer, Dell, HP, and Lenovo have all created headsets for Windows Mixed Reality, so just choose one and plug it into the USB port on your computer to begin.

Mixer integration now allows streamers to interact with their audience in new ways. With this integration, any Minecraft command can be turned into an interactive button on Mixer. Viewers can spawn mobs, drop TNT, provide resources, change the time of day, and more. You’re only limited by your creativity.

Full details and a quick walkthrough on how to use the new Mixer Interactivity in Minecraft can be viewed here. This feature is set to go live on Xbox One later this week. A separate mod for Java players will be coming later this year as well.
