The Kinect is a great little device that utilizes a lot of voice controls. Of course, there’s always room for improvement. Read below to see GamerFitNation’s brief interview with a Microsoft spokesperson to see what Xbox users can expect in the near future.
Q: There are many commands that Xbox One can be given in order to complete different tasks. I’ve noticed that one of the commands doesn’t allow you to eject the disc via voice. Is there a reason for that, and is that coming at some point?
A: 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.
Q: How will the Kinect voice controls improve over time?
A: 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.
