Microsoft wants you to help improve Kinect 2.0's voice recognition

Xbox One's Kinect hasn’t been doing so great with the voice commands because it still doesn’t work for many people. Sometimes it is just a miss and sometimes you are lucky and it works and Microsoft has known about the existence of this problem for a while now. There’s a new update coming up and as we have heard Redmond will be putting up a new feature of speech data collection as a way to crowdsource the sensor's improvement which will be optional. Xbox's Major Nelson recently revealed on his blog that having more voice sample from people will help the company to deal with this problem sooner because the more voice samples the company has to add to its algorithms, the more accurate the console can be.

And since this is an option, those people who are not so fond of having their voice samples being collected can decide not to opt for this process. But in case you are one of those who want to extend help in order to overcome this problem will simply have to dip into the console's privacy settings and enable this option for speech data collection. This will not be the first time of Microsoft doing this because such an option was also extended for the Xbox 360.

Some features had been requested by the users and they are being added to the new update. The Xbox One is also getting a sound mixer for snapped apps and volume control for voice chat which is going to give you control over which app on-screen is the louder of the pair. This is a perfect setting for listening to shows in the background.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
