Microsoft (MSFT.O) announced the end of the “mixed reality” capability for Windows, which allowed some hardware and software to access augmented and virtual reality capabilities.

Microsoft (MSFT.O) announced on Thursday the discontinuation of the “mixed reality” capability for Windows, which allowed some gear and software to access augmented and virtual reality capabilities.

The functionality was introduced in a Windows 10 update in 2017, and the mixed reality portal app allowed users to utilize compatible VR headsets to access the technology on their personal computers.

Microsoft refers to software that combines augmented and virtual reality as mixed reality.

Augmented reality overlays text, music, visuals, and video over real-world images that users view in front of them, whereas virtual reality immerses users in a computer-generated world.

“Windows mixed reality is deprecated and will be removed in a future release of Windows,” Microsoft said.

The corporation shelved plans for HoloLens 3, which could mean the end of the augmented reality headset line in that form.
