    For those of us with fond memories of Kinect voice commands, Alexa and Cortana have been a "next-best-thing," but thankfully, they're both still improving.
    While Amazon Echo and Harman/Kardon Invoke Cortana speaker integration has been a welcome boost for post-Kinect Xbox users, the commands have typically been a little slower, and a little clunkier to use.
    For example, with Kinect, you could simply say "Xbox on," and the console would boost up, as well as turn on your TV and sound system if they were connected and set up to do so. Nowadays, we're saying "Hey Cortana, tell Xbox to turn on." And hey, it works, but it's nowhere near as intuitive. However, proceedings get a little easier today.

    An update to the Xbox voice command service means that you can now use more natural, shorter commands to control your console via Amazon Echo and Cortana speakers.
