Feedback for HoloLens

Use the Feedback Hub to tell us which features you love, which features you could do without, and how something could be better. The engineering team uses the same mechanism internally to track and fix bugs, so please use Feedback Hub to report any bugs that you see. We are listening!

Feedback Hub is an excellent way to alert the engineering team to bugs and to make sure that future updates are healthier and more consistently free of bugs. However, Feedback Hub does not provide a response. If you need immediate help, please file feedback, take note of the summary that you provided for your feedback, and then follow up with HoloLens support.

Note

  • Make sure you that you have the current version of Feedback Hub. To do this, select Start > Microsoft Store, and then select the ellipses (...). Then, select Downloads and updates > Get updates.

  • To provide the best possible data for fixing issues, we highly recommended that you set your device telemetry to Full. You can set this value during the Out-of-Box-Experience (OOBE), or by using the Settings app. To do this by using Settings, select Start > Settings > Privacy > App Diagnostics > On.
