Microsoft has released its Holographic Remoting app for its HoloLens devices. This allows users to create apps and content from their PCs and then stream it to their devices.

Microsoft’s developer documentation explains how Holographic remoting works:

Holographic remoting allows an app to target HoloLens 2 with holographic content hosted on a desktop PC or on a UWP device such as the Xbox One, allowing access to more system resources and making it possible to integrate remote immersive views into existing desktop PC software. A remoting host app receives an input data stream from HoloLens 2, renders content in a virtual immersive view, and streams content frames back to HoloLens 2. The connection is made using standard Wi-Fi. Holographic Remoting is added to a desktop or UWP app via a NuGet packet.

In the meantime, you’ll need the Store app to facilitate this. As can be inferred from the app description:

The Holographic Remoting Player is a companion app that connects to PC apps and games that support Holographic Remoting. Holographic Remoting streams holographic content from a PC to your Microsoft HoloLens in real-time, using a Wi-Fi connection.
