Xbox 720 rumors: Siri-like features in Microsoft’s next console?

Recently we reported that the next-generation Xbox may need an internet connection at all times.

Now The Verge reports that they have learned from sources familiar with the company that the future Xbox could feature voice recognition technology.

According to the report, you will be able to turn on the console by simply saying “Xbox” in the living room or bedroom.

In addition, the device will be capable of detecting the number of people in the room to provide the most appropriate games.

The handset would be able to understand natural language searches, just like Apple’s Siri , which marks an evolution in comparison with the Kinect voice recognition, which only responds to specific voice commands.

Expected by the end of the year , especially the holidays period, the Xbox 720 could be unveiled at the next E3.
