7 Kinect voice commands you should know that go beyond ‘Xbox, On’

Odds are by now you know these commands for your Xbox One: “Xbox, On,” “Xbox, Turn Off…Yes,” “Snap” this and “Record” that. But some commands go deeper or simply serve as helpful shortcuts.

Xbox Wire shares seven such useful and lesser-known commands. They include: “Xbox, Notifications” to see a rundown of recent notifications, including invites, installations and achievements; “Xbox, Switch,” which switches input focus between your main screen and a snapped app (great for pausing Netflix, for example); and “Xbox, Invite,” to pick from your friend list by number, with online friends listed first.

To learn more details about these four more commands, head over to Xbox Wire.
