XBOX One Voice Control Demo

XBOX One Kinect Voice CommandThe wonderful folks at PCMag.com have gotten an XBOX One early for review purposes. Based on the video review, the XBOX One’s voice controls are really nice. While they are still not perfect, the Kinect can hear commands very well and can typically figure out what you are attempting to say. The navigation works rather well with just a big of lag between the command and action. The XBOX One will allow you to control pretty much any activity except playing video games with your voice. The voice command technology within the XBOX One is light years ahead of the current PlayStation 4 with it’s optional earpiece and camera system.

The XBOX One’s voice commands consist of two types. The XBOX One has universal commands which can be accessed from anywhere outside of a video game. To specify a universal command you would need to begin with “XBOX “. For example saying “XBOX watch TV”, the XBOX would turn on the TV using a configured IR blaster and from their you could command the XBOX to watch specific channels, shows, or view the One Guide. You can call contacts via Skype by saying “XBOX Call “. The other type of commands on the XBOX One are specific to the current screen you are on. For example when on the TV, you can command the XBOX One to go to the guide or see what is on a specific channel from within the guide.

Checkout the video below to see how the XBOX One functions with voice commands. As mentioned earlier it is not perfect but it does work surprisingly well. As with everything it takes some time and practice to learn how to properly utilize the new voice command features. No doubt with time and console updates Microsoft will improve the functionality and potentially add additional commands and features to the XBOX One and Kinect.

  1. I want to buy any one of them. Someone told me that the hardware of ps3 is better and the software of xbox 360 is better. So I am confused that which one to buy? I want a good storage. As I am going to play most of the games in it.

  2. I have always used Nintendo products and this will be my first time buying a game system that isn’t Nintendo. The other two biggest game systems right now are the PS3 and the Xbox 360 and I was wondering which one would be better to buy. I am honestly leaning towards the PS3 because I like the fact that it has a Blu-Ray player and the live mode is free. The only thing that keeps me from choosing the PS3 is that the Xbox has Kinect and that would be really fun to play Just Dance without a controller; plus my friend said they had Fruit Ninja for the Kinect.
    Can you give me pros and cons to each system and help sway my decision on which one I should buy?
    Or should I wait for the next new game system being that these have been out for a few years?

  3. ok so im making the switch from 360 to playstation because the xbox is becoming worse with every update. i dislike the new dashboard i hate exactly how it does not have an internet browser and i dislike all the noobs and douche bags they do nothing but talk sh * t. Likewise the playstations exclusive kick method more butt than 360s. but i do not have a tag yet and i cant truly consider one. i desire something with Disorder in it. however it keeps say that it can not be used. Any pointers on what to do making use of Dysfunction?

  6. Hello men,.
    First of all thanks for taking your time out for inspecting this one out.
    I’m in a repair! I just can’t seem to decide …
    I got a complete hd led television (not bravia) and like getting among the two.
    Xbox appears to have a much better online neighborhood and the much better controller but ps has actually the added bluray drive and slightly much better graphics … ps is likewise better for total home media … also its easily adjustable … like altering the tough drive … and also, devices for the ps are more affordable than the xbox … I live in India … so there are a lot of Sony service centers right here … so, I would not get stuck when something goes wrong. I’m not too crazy about the bluray player(although I did hear that games can come out in bluray in the future … then, its a need to have!) also I’m not keen on kinect or step … so this is it guys …
    Xbox live vs playstation network.
    Contrast of controllers.
    Availability of even more unique titles.
    other media in basic.
    As well as I do not mind spending for xbox live.
    Thanks for any help!
    And by the method, please don’t be prejudiced … I suggest, if you simply own an xbox and haven’t experienced the ps, the please don’t put it down … and vice versa …
    Thank you:).
    The size, appearance and design of the consoles do not matter to me … I require efficiency and longevity.
    And at the end please advise which one to buy.
    Likewise, should I await any modifications in the near future?

  7. I’m getting one for Christmas, however don’t know which … I’ll get mainly COD games, and Bioshock, and EA Sports games. I also love to speak with headsets, and I know both have them, however which has so much more onliners making use of headsets?
    Wow, you men went to town with these responses! Thank you all SIGNIFICANTLY!: P.

  8. Quick question on some info. Looking to get a xbox 360, but don’t really know which one i need. I don’t need big GB systems because don’t download movies/music, etc., but don’t want to get the bottom of the barrell right? I will only be using for playing Modern Warfare 2 online. Any suggestions?

  9. Hi to all. I wish to understand which of these two consoles: Ps3 or Xbox360-Elite, do you advise me to buy or other great consoles out or that will be out before January.
    Thanks for your responses.

  11. For the 360, I really want Destroy All Humans: Path of the Furon. I simply love the game and I can’t stand not to have it. However, I don’t want to have to pay for GOLD. The 360 lacks internet explorer, music, video, and pictures.

    For the PS3, it has a video player, music player, picture viewer, free online, but Path of the Furon was canceled for PS3 in USA, but not UK or AUS, but I don’t know how to import the game.

    If your going to say “Get both”, I suggest you pay a visit to cows in the butcher shops.
    The 1st four answerers are not helping. They didn’t read my problem. Nice job idiots.
    OMGimaBLONDE: thx!
