Xbox One to feature remote play and two-way conversations

Microsoft's revolutionary gaming console, the Xbox One, is not yet available in the market. But, since its launch, we've been hearing unannounced features that seem to be pretty cool. The latest, as reported by Polygon, is the capability to allow gamers to ask other players to remotely help them finish a particular game, should they find themselves in a hopeless situation.

Sources say that the cool feature will utilize Skype, and that a message will pop up on the screen to ask permission if the remote player can take over the game. Players can then watch the other player finish the game, and either of them can end the remote play with a push of a button. Sources went on saying that the console can also talk back to gamers, thanks to Kinect.

The Xbox One is said to rely heavily on Kinect for voice commands, which could even make two-way conversations possible. Sources added that the console can use facial recognition to scan a room full people and detect if there was someone it didn't recognize. It will then talk to the owner that there is someone in the room it didn't recognize, ask for the stranger's name, and save the information to its memory for future use.
