Larry ‘Major Nelson’ Hryb has announced that the latest Xbox One System update is now available and has began to roll out to users. The update will bring the following improvements:
Sound Mixer for Apps with Snap and Volume Controls When Using Kinect with Chat
After receiving great feedback from fans asking for more control over audio levels and background sound. As a result, under Settings Xbox have 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 Xbox have to input into our algorithms, the better and more responsive Xbox One can be to users. If you want to help in the 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.
