Video Showing Fall Redesign of Xbox Dashboard

By Mark Delaney, 7 years ago
The fall update to the Xbox LIVE dashboard was announced at E3 earlier this year and was promised to include console-wide Bing searches via Kinect voice commands. Today, Microsoft has shown off a new trailer featuring a considerable amount of men wearing dress shirts. This trailer aims to focus on the new Bing searches and preaches Microsoft's motto of "All the entertainment you want, with the people you care about, made easy."

The feature will streamline all of your content into one collection of related media items, based on your voice commands. Search "Lost" and you'll find all episodes of the (award-winning, epic) television show, as well as wallpapers, game trailers, and anything else relevant. Search "Dead Space" and you'll be presented with the DLC, videos, and gamerpics, among all else.

Microsoft continued in a press briefing:
As you can see, integration of products and services like Xbox, Kinect and Bing is at the heart of our strategy. This is just one more example of how Bing is more than just Microsoft’s search engine, competing to win against Google – Bing is also a strategic asset that makes many other Microsoft products better and more attractive to our customers. Thanks to Bing, Kinect and our voice recognition technology, we envision a future where the words “Hey, where’s the remote?” are as outdated as eight-track tapes and rotary telephones.
Though the redesign will be universal regardless of region, other E3 features such as Youtube and UFC have yet to be detailed in such a way. As always, as soon as we know, you'll know.
