New Xbox Live Update brings Voice Control to TVs
 
Buy Xbox 360 Kinect from Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now
 

Xbox 360 is transforming how you enjoy TV entertainment and is giving you the power to control it with your voice.

Microsoft announced a new big update for the Xbox 360 that leapfrogs Google TV and Apple TV. The power of Kinect combined with Bing search is turning your voice into the ultimate remote control. With Bing on Xbox, you can use your voice to effortlessly find the games, movies, TV shows and music you want and discover the best offerings on Xbox LIVE, by simply saying what you’re searching for. You say it, Xbox finds it. Beginning tomorrow and over the coming weeks, Bing on Xbox voice search will initially be available in English in the U.S., Canada and the U.K. for Zune video, Xbox LIVE Marketplace and select content partners. For those who do not have a Kinect for Xbox 360, text search will be available in Xbox LIVE markets.

Microsoft is also adding tons of media content to the Xbox Live platform with apps from partners. Xbox 360 is building on its expansive catalog of movies, sports, television and music available through Hulu Plus, Last.fm, Netflix, Zune music and video and ESPN, as well as on its existing lineup of great TV providers, such as AT&T U-verse TV in the U.S., TELUS in Canada, BSkyB in the U.K., CANAL+ in France, Vodafone Portugal, VimpelCom in Russia and FOXTEL in Australia, by also now rolling out the following new entertainment partners and apps:
