Full list of Xbox One voice commands you can use with Kinect (update)

Redeem code Xbox One

We’ve seen many demos showcasing how amazing the voice commands are in Xbox One: “Xbox On”, “Xbox YouTube”, “Xbox use a code”, but do you know which are all the voice commands that the next-gen Microsoft’s game console can actually recognise?

Calling Xbox’s attention is easy, simply say “Xbox” and all the available commands will appear on the screen. Then say “Bing”, “Netflix”, etc.

You can also say “Xbox Select” and some features will appear in green text. This allows you to say the word. Here is an example, say “Xbox Select” while using Xbox Video, then say “Movies Stores”.

Now that you know how to use Xbox One voice commands, here is a full list of voice commands available for Kinect on the game console:

Note: Microsoft currently supports the following languages: English, French, German, Portuguese, Spanish, and Italian. However, the command “Xbox: On” is only available in English, French, and German.
