The Xbox One is one of the most used gaming consoles on the market. Microsoft has been adding new features and changes to its console since the launch day to compete directly with the Sony PlayStation. However, the Xbox One is falling behind the Sony PlayStation on the market due to lack of exclusive games.
Microsoft needs more time to make sure everything runs smoothly. One of the best things when it comes to the Xbox One lies in the ability to control your gaming control using your voice command, thanks to Cortana integration.
If you now own an Xbox One gaming console, you now will get support for Alexa and Google Assistant in the coming months. Microsoft has not made any announcements yet. Sources say that Microsoft Xbox One will be getting support for Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant this year.
Sources say that users will be able to control their gaming console without the need for a pair of headphones. Tech experts say that users can ask Alexa or Google Assistant to turn on/off their console or even launch a game, which eliminates the need for using the physical buttons.
Rumors say that the Xbox One will receive an update that includes a dedicated section for digital assistants. This will allow users to select their preferred personal helper and install skills. However, it remains unclear when Alexa and Google Assistant will hit the Xbox One. Sources say that Microsoft will announce the release date in September.
Tech experts say that support for Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant will boost Xbox One sales performance this year. The Xbox One has seen a steady growth since the day one. However, Microsoft’s gaming console is losing the fight against Sony’s counterpart on the market.
The Sony PlayStation hits more than 70 millions of units sold, while Microsoft has shipped nearly 40 millions of units. Microsoft has a lot of work to do if they want to overthrow Sony this year. We are expecting to see the unveiling of more exclusive games for the Xbox.
The recently-launched State of Decay 2 failed to live up to expectations among gamers worldwide. Microsoft needs more exclusive gaming titles to reclaim some ground it has lost to Sony.
