Today Microsoft have made available its two new business apps for Microsoft HoloLens. The new apps are Microsoft Remote Assist and Microsoft Layout and they are available for a limited time free preview from the Microsoft Store.

Microsoft have created Microsoft Layout to enable HoloLens users to design concept and view then in the real world:

Bring designs from concept to completion with confidence and speed using Microsoft Layout. Import 3D models to easily create room layouts in real-world scale. Experience designs as high-quality holograms in physical or virtual space and edit in real time. With Microsoft Layout, you can see ideas in context, saving valuable time and money.

Microsoft Remote Assist is a collaboration app for mixed reality:

Microsoft Remote Assist enables collaboration in mixed reality to solve problems faster. Firstline workers can collaborate remotely with heads-up, hands-free video calling, image sharing, and mixed reality annotations. They can share what they see with an expert on Microsoft Teams, while staying hands-on to solve problems and complete tasks together, faster.

Microsoft Layout requires the latest version of the HoloLens OS 17393 which was released today and you can find out how to install it on my blog post.
