Power Apps Mixed Reality Components General Availability

Today, we are excited to announce the general availability of mixed reality (MR) features in Power Apps, which include the View in 3D, View in MR, View Shape in MR, and Measure in MR components.

With hundreds of millions of MR-capable mobile devices in the hands of business users, every maker will be able to leverage the power of mixed reality to digitize workflows in physical space in new and innovative ways.

Communicate better with 3D models and images 

Understand how products will look in a space quickly and easily using your mobile device. Your users can visualize 3D models and images, place them in the real world, and take a photo of the scene to share with others. This content can be stored in Dataverse or existing data connectors to other locations such as SharePoint and OneDrive.  

Take measurements

Take linear or volumetric measurements to understand the dimensions of the physical world directly through Power Apps. These measurements, including the calculated area / volume and bounding box, can kick off automated processes or be stored back into your data source.

Validate fit before work begins   

Use volumetric representations to find out if a pathway is large enough, how the product will fit, or how placement might impact line of sight. These volumetric representations can be customized by your users to validate fit. 

Using the mixed reality components 

We are confident that mixed reality will unlock tremendous value for your businesses and we are excited to be on this journey together with you. Leverage low-code development to drag-and-drop these mixed reality capabilities directly in your apps today from the Media and Mixed Reality sections of the insert pane.

As always, we would love to hear from you on how we can keep improving our mixed reality features. Please leave your feedback and comments on this post or in the Ideas Forum with the ‘mixed reality’ label, so we can keep track of your comments and requests.
