Microsoft has added two new features under Settings, two new features for controlling your audio options in the form of a sound mixer enabling you to control the volume levels of two apps when you’re using Snap, enabling 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. Microsoft explains a little more about the new voice recognition features:
“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 we have to input into our algorithms, the better and more responsive Xbox One can be to our fans. If you want to help us in our 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.”
