Microsoft will introduce Siri-style voice recognition to the new Xbox, a report has claimed.

Next-generation Xbox users will have the ability to power on the console using voice commands, ask the device questions and use speech-to-text services to write messages, according to the Verge.

The Kinect sensor, meanwhile, will reportedly detect individuals in a room and  recommend appropriate multiplayer games. Users will also be able to resume videos where they left off by using voice commands and ask the device  what games friends are playing.
