Voice Studio App Released for Kinect [US ONLY]

    Fifty easy gamerscore for helping Microsoft test things

    Some of you may have noticed people on your feeds popping achievements in something called Voice Studio. What is it you ask? Voice Studio is an app that functions for Microsoft testing, much like last year's Xbox LIVE Labs. This time around, they're testing the Kinect's voice recognition, so you'll obviously need a Kinect to use this App. As anyone who has played Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, only to say 'hello' to someone thus inexplicably tossing a grenade and killing your co-op buddy in the process can attest to, this needs to be tested, so the more people that get in on this, the better that recognition will be (and the less your co-op buddies will get killed).

    You can download Voice Studio from the dashboard. It will ask you to say hundreds of phrases over eight "tracks" and... that's pretty much it. It contains four achievements worth 50G, as well as avatar awards. It appears to only be available from the US Dashboard at the moment, though we'll let you know if it becomes available elsewhere.

    The download link on the US website isn't showing up for me.
    And I literally just downloaded Musical Feet for the Kinect from my computer...

    I'll have to get on my xbox tonight and download it through there.

    in case anyone can't find it, it's under the "Social Apps" section of the "Social" tab on the dashboard.

    Got this on a US account and works fine on my EU account. I think they will release it outside US as well cause they had alot of region specific settings for Sweden.

    Right...telling my partner hello and then throwing a grenade that killed him was an "accident", due to the Kinect sensor. Don't know why he didn't believe me.
    I miss the good old days of WW2 Call of Duty

    Just completed it and it took quite awhile and got boring but at least it was an extremely easy 50G and completion. Some of the things they had you say were so bizarre lol. Hope my input helps Microsoft improve the voice functionality in Kinect.
    Jump right out of a creek!

    Odd that this is US-only. You'd think if there's one thing that absolutely requires worldwide testing it's voice recognition.

    Can't you just pretend you are american and speak in a texan drawl to get the 50 GS? No? Bugger. Or should that be goddamn.
