    Cortana is available on Xbox One, bringing natural language commands to the console, but she comes with some specific hardware requirements.
    As specified by Microsoft, to use Cortana on Xbox One you either need to have a Kinect or a headset microphone.
    As much as I love my Kinect, it can be expensive to purchase as a standalone device, especially if you have no intentions of using its motion tracking features. Since the new Xbox One S comes with an IR blaster built in, you may find yourself even less likely to want a Kinect unit. Additionally, if you have invested in a dedicated sound system, donning to a headset just for Cortana might seem a little counter-intuitive and silly.

    But if you have the revised Xbox One controller with a built-in 3.5mm headset jack, there's an easy, cheap and cheerful method for activating Cortana voice commands on Xbox One.
