Microsoft is partnering with game engine developers Unity in order to make HoloLens compatible with apps and games which use the cross-platform engine.

The partnership was announced yesterday during its Build Developer Conference.

Universal apps for Windows 10 systems will also be available on Xbox One later this year, suggesting possible HoloLens functionality with the console – something which was alluded to when the augmented reality device was announced in January.

Xbox boss Phil Spencer said at the time it was a dedicated device, but that Microsoft was looking into how it could be used with PC and Xbox One.
