    With the updates to the Xbox One, the voice commands are working very nicely lately.

    The one area I struggle with it though, is the volume. Everytime I say "Xbox" to get its attention, then "Volume Up" or "Volume Down", it moves one click in that direction. I then have to say "Xbox" again, and the volume command again. Over and over. This gets tedious. Is there a way to keep saying "up" or "volume up" over and over, without having to say "Xbox" each and everytime? Makes it far to hard to control the volume with it.

    Not sure if you've tried, but you can say "xbox volume up" in one sentence which will work. The other thing is to change the number of steps. So mine goes up by 4 points everytime i say "xbox volume up"

    Nope, there's no such way. What you can do though is increase the steps in which each command increases or decreases the volume.

    LoL. Well, that's only because of my bluray surround. It goes from 1-99. And stepping it up 3-5 you barely notice the difference.

    I don't bother with the voice command for volume control and just use smartglass or one of our remotes to adjust it.
    I did adjust the steps a while ago and others in the house use it, just not my personal preference :D.
