From the manufacturer
With the standalone Kinect Sensor from Microsoft, you can command your Xbox One and TV with your voice and gestures, play compatible games without a controller, and make Skype calls in HD.
Be recognized and signed-in automatically, and use your voice to find your favorite entertainment, snap apps, switch instantly, and start recording game clips. You can even broadcast your gameplay live with picture-in-picture. The Kinect sensor for Xbox One has a 1080p HD camera, advanced infrared technology, and a microphone array with noise isolation for maximum precision in capturing sound and motion.
Please note that the Xbox Kinect Adapter (sold separately) is required for use with Xbox One S consoles and PC.
You are the Controller
You can also use your whole body and voice to control games like Kinect Sports Rivals, Zoo Tycoon, and more.
Navigate your console without lifting a finger. You can instantly switch between your games, TV, and apps. You can also send messages, control video and music playback, and change the channel and volume of your TV.
Cortana on Xbox One
Coming from Windows 10 devices, Cortana is now on Xbox One. Cortana is your personal gaming assistant. Just use “Hey Cortana…” to call up commands. You can even configure your Xbox One to turn on other devices, like your TV, audio/video receiver, and cable/satellite receiver.
Kinect eliminates the need to manually switch or sign into your Xbox account. The Kinect will recognize you and sign you in automatically when turning on your console, so you can spend more time gaming and less time at a login screen.
Multi-Tasking Made Easy
Snap an app with Kinect Voice Commands. Simply move the app to one side of your screen where it will continue to run while you do something else on the main part of your screen. Now there’s no need to choose between playing a game or checking up on football scores. Do both by simply saying “Xbox, snap NFL” and continue playing, all without interrupting your game.
Connect with Skype & Twitch
Keep in touch with friends and family on your TV with Skype for Xbox One. With its 1080p HD camera, the Kinect delivers a highly detailed picture, and its microphone array picks out your voice above any other sound in the room. You can even broadcast your gameplay live with picture-in-picture through Twitch. Just launch the app and simply say “Xbox, Broadcast.”
