After releasing Windows Holographic version 22H1 back in April, Microsoft announced the availability of version 22H2 today . It is the platform that runs Microsoft Windows mixed reality devices such as HoloLens 2. Windows Holographic version 22H2 does not have a very long changelog, but it does contain improvements that some customers may find very important.
A key feature of this release is the ability to use certain policies to add users more quickly. In essence, the new policy makes it easier to skip multiple screens in the out-of-the-box experience (OOBE) for faster user onboarding. In the same vein, there is also an authorized portal that allows for faster login for new users and you won’t have to look for an existing logged in user for this process to take place.
Another feature is the ability to clear log storage when remotely troubleshooting a device. There are also several other policies, including those that allow connections to your own NTP time server and disable NCSI passive polling. Finally, don’t forget to check the HoloLens 2 security baseline, but that hasn’t changed in this release.
IT administrators can use Windows Update for Business (WUfB) to bring Windows Holographic version 22H2 to their fleet of devices. Meanwhile, users can go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update > Check for Updates in order to get the release as soon as it becomes available. Please note that you must have at least the 21H1 version in order to have a clean 22H2 version.
