According to a handy article from Medium:
VR is immersing people into a completely virtual environment. AR is creating an overlay of virtual content, but can’t interact with the environment. MR is a mixed of virtual reality and the reality—it creates virtual objects that can interact with the actual environment. XR brings all three Reality (AR, VR, MR) together under one term.
