Coming Soon: New Audio Controls and Opt-In Setting to Help Improve Voice Recognition
 

As part of our ongoing effort to bring new features to our Xbox fans worldwide, we’ll begin rolling out more features to folks in our early access program beginning this week and we’re looking forward to their feedback before shipping the system update to all Xbox One owners in May. We hope you’ve been enjoying our most recent Xbox One system update that rolled out last week and we look forward to bringing you even more great features in the months ahead.

 

Feature highlights for this next phase of our early access program include a new sound mixer for snapped apps, chat volume controls when using Kinect and the option to help us improve speech recognition. You can also take this update on demand as soon as it becomes available if you’d like.

 

Sound Mixer for Apps with Snap and Volume Controls When Using Kinect with Chat

 

We’ve received great feedback from fans asking for more control over audio levels and background sound. As a result, under Settings we’ve added two new features for controlling your audio options. With the new Sound mixer, you’ll be able to control the volume levels of two apps when you’re using Snap letting you decide which app is louder. In this same section, you’ll also be able to control the volume levels when you’re using Kinect for chat.

Opt-In to Help Improve Speech Recognition

 

Being able to control your Xbox One with voice commands can be a magical moment and we want to continue making this great for all Xbox One owners worldwide. The more voice samples we have to input into our algorithms, the better and more responsive Xbox One can be to our fans. If you want to help us in our efforts to make voice and speech improvements for Kinect even better, you can opt-in to a speech data collection.

 

Under Settings, then Privacy & Online Safety, go to Customizing privacy and online safety and set Share Voice Data to Allow. This is completely optional and all voice data shared via this setting will be used for product improvement only.

 

Take the Next System Update When You Want

 

You’ll now also be able to take this next system update as soon as it’s available if you want. When this update is made available, you’ll find the option under Settings, then select System update as shown below.

As always, we’re thrilled with our fans’ enthusiasm about our Xbox One system updates and we’re really excited about what’s coming in the next few months. We look forward to hearing your feedback about these latest features in our early access program and will roll them out to everyone worldwide in May.

Small update but I'm wondering if the sound mixer thing sets the ground for having background music playback like on the 360. I really miss that feature.

They could add more things as we get closer to the final May update release date.   Or, and I kind of expected this, they could be saving things for a bigger update in June.

Any chance that someone has some pull, to get me in the update?

I think Andrew tried to get me in the last one (Thanks by the way) but I must of been late accepting his friend request.

Or "Am I holding wrong" while trying to get in the preview program :-/

Better to release little changes regularly than make people wait months! Something small can actually be big for someone, just depends on everyone's individual uses/requirements and setups.

Shame :( At least 1 person I invited has made it into the preview. Anyone else?

 

When I can be bothered I'll do another invite spree and put some names forward again :p

Via the preview forums:

 

Other items that we are investigating based on your feedback:

  • Various HDMI-In issues with certain set-top boxes
  • Launch to TV - as a default Xbox setting
  • Favorites - ability to reorder the list
  • OneGuide expansion - add support for more countries (e.g. Brazil, Austria, Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand, etc.)
  • Better Device on/off controls for IR control of devices

Please keep all of the great feedback coming

Launch to TV as a default option would be great for many families where one or two are the only tech savvy types and the rest just want to watch TV and use it more as a set-top box.

 

Don't know when they plan to release this May update but I'm going to guess it's late in the month, maybe between 20th and 25th, so I expect more things to make it in.

@andrew - looks like I got in from your invite... If I have the audio mix, does that mean I'm in? After I entered the code I never got any additional notices from ms
