Microsoft yesterday released new RS5 Insider build for HoloLens. This new Windows 10 Build 17737 includes bug fixes and stability improvements to the features released previously. Find the full change log below.

Bug Fixes:

  • We fixed an issue with some notification toasts appearing as a gray box.
  • We fixed an issue where the cursor will jump between gaze and mouse when using a Bluetooth mouse.
  • We fixed an issue where Cortana may stop listening if you wait for her to respond after saying, “Hey Cortana.”
  • We fixed several other issues with voice commands and dictation, including an issue that prevented Cortana from working after update.
  • We fixed an issue that prevented holograms from re-appearing after sign-out and sign-in.
  • We added OCR support for Chinese and Japanese characters in the localized builds. For more information on using these builds, see the link above.
  • We fixed a crash in the camera when taking a photo while the thumbnail previous of the last capture is visible.

Known Issues:

  • After updating from a previous build, customers may not be able to receive incoming calls in Remote Assist.
  • We’re still investigating a bug causing the share dialog to not load all available apps to share to for a while after initial boot.

Last month, Microsoft released RS5 build 17720 for HoloLens with lots of new features and fixes. Microsoft added the ability to project to a Miracast-enabled TV or computer directly from your HoloLens. This will allow you to share your mixed reality experience with others. Also, Microsoft added support for notification toasts from apps. Read all other RS5 features for HoloLens here.
