Xbox skill improvements for Cortana and Alexa
The Xbox skill for Cortana and Alexa launched last month in the U.S., and with the November release we have the first set of updates.
- Say “Hey Cortana, pair my Xbox” to any Cortana device and Cortana will automatically discover and pair with your Xbox – no signing in necessary.
- The Xbox skill for Alexa has added support for gamers in the UK with the addition of UK English voice recognition. To get started with Alexa, just say “Alexa, open Xbox.”
- The new navigation mode lets you use your voice as your controller. Press buttons (A, B, X, Y) and navigate around your console (up, down, left, right) – say “Start navigation mode” or “Press [button name]” to try it out!
