Xbox One, soon to support Alexa and Google Assistant

According to the reports that we got from our sources, the Microsoft Xbox One console is soon to incorporate support Alexa digital assistant and Google Assistant. Our sources reported that the models of the Xbox One dashboard that are soon to arrive would have built into them, the capability to enable Alexa and Google Assistant using a special method on each of the different platforms. At the moment, Microsoft only has support for its Cortana digital assistant via it Kinect accessory or a headset, but in the meantime, Cortana is a bit limited.


The move made by Microsoft to expand its Xbox One so as to enable it have support for Alexa digital assistant as well as Google assistant in some way implies that users of the Xbox One will now have the ability to control their console via the use of their console through both of the digital assistants. It has not been stated exactly in clear and precise terms the kind of features that Microsoft will support, but it means that there’s no possibility that people who own Xbox One will not have to make use of a Kinect or headset to issue voice commands.

An Xbox veteran at Microsoft whose name is Albert Penello linked up with Amazon to “help figure out how to grow Alexa / Echo presence in gaming.” It is pertinent to note that once this integration goes as planned and is completed, it will add up to the fact that Alexa is having an increasing presence through various devices. For some time now, Microsoft has been working with Amazon to integrate Alexa digital assistant and Cortana digital assistant, this therefore implies that sooner or later most computer systems with Windows 10 will have Alexa digital assistant built into them.

There’s no certainty on the available commands, but it will not be surprising for it to include media controls or screen navigation in the main Xbox interface.
