Xbox One can now be controlled via the Google Assistant
Game console Xbox One can now be controlled via the Google Assistant, for switching the console on and off and other actions.
The Google Assistant can control the Xbox One game console from Microsoft. The console can be switched on and off via voice commands and games can be started. It is also possible to take screenshots, pause, change the volume and more.
Harrison Hoffman from Microsoft shared the news in a post on Reddit forum. According to him, many gamers on this forum asked about this feature.
The function is now being tested, but anyone can participate in that test. A disadvantage is that only the English version of Google’s speech assistant can now handle the Xbox. As soon as the feature officially launches later this fall, more languages are likely to be supported.
