Microsoft has rolled out another Redstone 4 update for HoloLens following last weeks build 17123 release for the headset. It's pretty significant, not only because this one it brings it inline with the RTM release for the Windows 10 Spring update, but because it is only the third update to make it on to the headset since the Windows 10 Anniversary Update was released in August 2016.
HoloLens still isn't a widely available consumer product, but you can buy the $3,000 Development Edition if you want, however, it is expected that at some point, Microsoft will release a more cost-effective consumer model. The device itself has remained fairly stagnant for some time.
Anyway, the changelog for build 17133.1004 isn't very long at all, and is as follows:
- Fixes for speech reliability and overall reliability of the product.
- Known issue: Users may experience reliability issues with using voice to place Skype calls or launch apps for the first time.
If you don't already have last week's build installed, in order to install the new update, you'll have to do a bit of work. First, you need to enroll in the Windows Insider Program by going to Settings -> Update & Security -> Get Insider Preview builds -> Get started. Then, you'll need to sideload the build with the Windows Device Recovery Tool using the 'Manual package selection' option. After that, you'll need to go through the out-of-box experience.
If you installed build 17123 last week, all you'll need to do to get build 17133.1004, is check for updates.
