Voice Activated and Controlled Xbox App

Today.com just announced the launch of their new custom app which can be found on Xbox Live. The exciting new app is part of the all-new Xbox 360 experience that gives you the power to control the Xbox with your voice.

The voice activation, powered by Kinect and Bing search, turns your voice into the ultimate remote control. You can use your voice to effortlessly find the latest show, watch the most popular videos of the day and search for stories by specific anchors or your favorite topics. You say it and Xbox finds it.

“With the Xbox LIVE app, the TODAY show is again evolving with the times and technologies,” said Jim Bell, TODAY Executive Producer. “TODAY has already successfully expanded beyond TV screens and into the lives of millions on a variety of platforms. The brand that was created 60 years ago as a 2-hour morning news show is now available at any time and on any number of devices, from laptops to iPads and now the Xbox.”

With the release of this app, many Xbox owners (or soon to be Xbox owners due to Christmas) have become excited with the new technology brought to the gaming system.
