Xbox & Kinect with Windows Phone Xbox Companion App


David Meego - Click for blog homepageNow this is cool. With the addition of the Kinect to the Xbox we now have gesture and voice control of the Xbox. I am on the beta program and I must say that changes coming for the Xbox dashboard interface are fantastic and will change the way we use our entertainment and gaming systems.

Check out the cool video below demonstrating the experience we can expect.

The New Xbox TV Experience: Entertainment on Your Terms

Xbox 360 teams up with partners around the world to offer new entertainment services on Xbox LIVE, including live and on-demand TV, movies, games, sports, music and more. Starting this Holiday season, the entertainment services you want will be a voice command away and searchable via Bing voice search.

For more information look at Xbox & Kinect News: The Future of Gaming and Entertainment: Video Gallery.

Around the 1 minute mark the girl in the video uses her Windows Phone to search and interact with the Xbox. This is using a soon to be released free app for Windows Phone called the Xbox Companion App. 

This is just an amazing integration of multi devices into a single experience.  For more information have a look at the post from the Windows Phone Blog:

Exciting times ahead.

    Why isn't this available in Hungarian marketplace? The Xbox Companion app should be available in Hungary too considering that Xbox Live is officially supported in Hungary.
