Unveiled last summer, Remote Assist on Hololens lets you collaborate with people while letting them see through your eyes using the headset's camera. For instance, a more experienced colleague could guide you through a problem by drawing augmented reality annotations for you to follow. On Android, Microsoft is simply swapping out Hololens for a smartphone. This opens up the app to a broader spectrum of professionals who already use their handset at work and don't require a headset. By targeting professionals, Microsoft is also building on its Hololens niche in contrast with Google and Apple's consumer-friendly AR apps.
Product Visualize 365, meanwhile, is a completely new software exclusively for iOS. It's aimed at professionals in sales, allowing them to create scaled-down previews of larger products like vehicles and heavy machinery. The app is getting its start on iOS with a Hololens version expected in the near future.
