Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa are two of the most popular and widely used virtual assistants right now. Both Google and Amazon is partnering with tech companies to bring their Assistant to more and more device. Latest for them will be the Xbox One, Xbox One S and the Xbox One X.
Currently Xbox One consoles comes with Microsoft’s own Cortana in some regions which can be used via a headset only. As reported by Windows Central, Microsoft is planning to bring both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa to the Xbox one gaming consoles.
At Build 2018, Microsoft showcased how to access Alexa via Cortana and seeing Alexa on Xbox one is a not a surprise but seeing Google Assistant is definitely a big surprise. As we all know Google Assistant is currently the most advanced virtual assistant thanks to the data Google has.
According to the report, in upcoming Xbox One builds, the Kinect & Devices menu will have a new Digital Assistants option, which lets you enable Microsoft Cortana, Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. It will then ask you to install the Xbox skills app to use these virtual assistants.
Currently there is no date for when the update will be rolled out as currently Microsoft is testing the feature. Looks like just like the Windows Mobile, Microsoft is accepting that Cortana is behind the competition. While having both Alexa and Google Assistant is good for consumers, Microsoft Cortana is falling behind. Stay tuned to Sid Tech for latest tech news, deals, reviews and more.
