Xbox_One_Cortana_PartyMicrosoft is introducing its Cortana voice control system to the Xbox One as part of an update that it will start to roll out to the games console in the coming weeks.

Microsoft said that gamers can expect the familiar Cortana experience that is found on other Windows 10 devices and will launch it on the Xbox One in the US, UK, France, Italy, Germany and Spain first.

The voice commands will work on Xbox One via headsets and the Kinect
controller, with users able to use Cortana to perform tasks like finding new games and turning on their console.

“We’ll continue to build Cortana features over time and our vision is to use Cortana to help elevate your experience as your personal digital assistant for gaming. Just say ‘Hey Cortana’ or launch the app to get started,” said Microsoft.
