- If you have Kinect you can control your Xbox using your voice. Through the use of your voice you can navigate around the Xbox One screen, launch games and apps, and change other options on your console. If you're working with your Xbox while watching this course I recommend putting on headphones for this movie to avoid my voice from activating our XBox. To use voice-control, make sure you're within the recommended distance to the sensor for the microphone to pick you up. And remember to speak in a loud and clear voice.
Now you an actually even start-up your Xbox directly with your voice. Let's go ahead and try to do that now. Xbox on. [Xbox start-up tone] Now because I set-up my Xbox to sign me in based on the Kinect sensor, it was able to see that I was actually sitting in front of it and it automatically signed me in. Like I said, we can actually navigate the Xbox entirely with our voice. So let me go ahead and put the controller down. And let's give it a try.
Xbox. All the green commands you see here are all the things we can use to say to the Xbox to control the different functions. Select. Avatars. After a pause, if you haven't said anything to the Xbox, it's then going to turn off voice recognition mode.
To reactivate it just say, Xbox, go home. If you wish to turn off just say, stop listening. That's now has turned off voice activation mode. We can also control the screen of the home area here using our voice. Xbox, go home. Store. Games.
Go back. If you actually want to launch an application you can do that just by saying, launch the application. Go to Netflix. As you can see, just by saying that, it automatically launches Netflix and runs that on my Xbox. Xbox, go home. Notifications. If you're in a long list of things you can also navigate through the various pages of an app by using your voice.
Xbox, next page. Next page. Previous page. Stop listening. In the Xbox store there's also an app that will give you much more detailed information how to use your voice with your Xbox. Now in addition to turning it on, we can also turn the Xbox off. Xbox, turn off.
Yes. Using your voice to navigate is helpful if you don't have the controller available or as a fast shortcut to do something that would require a few steps with the controller. So remember, when you're working with the Xbox and working with your voice, always look for the green text. Those are the words you'll say to activate that specific command. Now it isn't always perfect. So be sure to speak clearly and loudly.
