  • Mixed reality annotations: 2-way inking and arrow insertion anchored to the real world
  • In-call text chat: Instant message during calls
  • OneDrive integration, file sharing, and display: HoloLens users’ and remote experts can insert documents (PDF) and images (JPG, PNG, TIFF, and BMP) into their shared view
  • Enterprise-level identity and security: AAD authentication and single sign-on
  • Mixed reality streaming: HoloLens users can share their view of another app by running Remote Assist in the background
  • Mixed reality capture: HoloLens users can capture mixed reality photos during calls
