Kinect Support Comes To Netflix

By Michelle Balsan, 5 years ago
Major Nelson revealed on his blog today that Netflix has finally been Kinect enabled.

The next time you fire up your Xbox, you'll be prompted to accept the latest update which adds Kinect support to Netflix. This update will allow controller-free, voice-activated control over your Netflix experience.

Major Nelson detailed the update a little further:

You’ll be able to select movies and TV shows recommended for you by Netflix, as well as play, pause, fast forward and rewind using gesture or voice. Kinect support for Netflix on Xbox LIVE will also feature an exclusive new recommendation channel that is controller-free and uses a smart engine to suggest movies or TV shows based on your viewing habits and instant queue.

She's also seen pretty much none of the movies you have, but she's working on that.
