Bing is now powering parts of Microsoft including Windows, Windows Phone, Office, and more. Even the upcoming Xbox One utilizes the power of Bing for the search functionality. With Bing and Kinect, you can easily find, play, watch, and listen to whatever you want. In fact, you can control the whole Xbox One using voice. You can wake up your Xbox One, switch between apps, start Skype call and more. Since it uses the Deep Neural Networks from Bing, it supports using natural phrases as well. For instance, you can say like the following to perform appropriate action.
- “I feel like watching comedy movies from the 1980’s”
- “Show me popular dubstep music”
- “I want to watch the movie Star Trek Into Darkness”
- “I want to play Forza Motorsport”
Voice search on Xbox One works across the content available, from Xbox music track to Hulu rental videos.
Xbox entertainment is growing from hundreds of thousands of pieces of content to millions. With all of the rich content options available today also comes complexity – most of us have a hard time finding the entertainment we’re looking for without paging through screens and screens of menus and switching between different programs. You have games, movies, music, TV shows and apps including services like Netflix and Hulu. By marrying great content with the power of Bing’s voice technology and the magic of Kinect, we’re able to provide instant access to an ever expanding universe of content options. Voice search works across media types and across apps so you can focus on deciding what to enjoy rather than where and how to find it. You say it, Xbox One finds it.
