All the Xbox One Kinect commands you’ll need….And some you probably won’t!

-

With Xbox One, Kinect is right at the forefront of how the system works. Yes, you don’t HAVE to use it, but seeing as it works so well, you’d be a fool not to.

But as with any voice recognition system, you’ll need to know the commands in order to fly around the dashboard. And so, it’s always a good idea to have a list of them somewhere. Here perhaps?

Xbox Unmute – ….and unmutes it!

Xbox Go Home – Returns to the home screen.

Xbox Show My Stuff – A fancier way of doing the above.

Xbox Show Menu – Saves you pressing that menu button on the controller.

Xbox Go Back – Goes back to the previous screen.

Xbox Snap [App] – Brings up an app in the snap window.

Xbox Hang Up – Ends your Skype call.

Xbox Play/stop/pause/fast forward/rewind/faster/slower – Controls for media playback.

Xbox skip forward/skip backwards/next song/previous song – More controls for media playback.

Xbox Play Music – Resumes the most recent song in Xbox Music.

And there we have it. There’s a few that we have been using alot, others not so much and a couple that have never been used and probably never will (not a Bing fan tbh!).

Good luck.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore. Gamertag is neil363, feel free to add me to your list.
