Xbox One “Will Upgrade Over Time”, Kinect Voice Models to Improve – Microsoft
Also suggests getting your voices heard by Microsoft.
In conversation with Gamer Fit Nation, a Microsoft spokesperson talked about the current state of Kinect and the Xbox One, and how both will improve over time as most consoles do.
Answering a question about whether disc ejection would have a voice command, the spokesperson stated that, “Voice command for ejecting discs is not a feature we’re supporting at this time. Xbox One launched with a comprehensive library of Kinect voice commands for the most commonly used voice commands. We’re always listening and taking feedback from our customers, but don’t have any specifics to share at this time on future voice updates.”
As for how Kinect will improve over time, “We’ve completely re-engineered Kinect to take full advantage of all that Xbox One can do. It’s more precise, more responsive, and more intuitive, and we plan to improve the experience in the future. Additionally, we’re continuing to improve the voice models over time as we get more usage information from our customers.
“The Xbox One will upgrade over time, as most consoles usually do. If Microsoft’s answers are any indication of what the future may hold for the Xbox One and its Kinect voice controls, it might be time that fans get their voices heard.”
The Xbox One has been doing fairly good business since launch, even if it’s lagging behind the PS4 according to analysts and sales figures. What does the future hold? We’ll of course have to wait to find out.
