    Yes the same adapter works on PC or Xbox One X, and from what others have said, it isn't too hard to make one.

    Got to admit I don't use Cortana on the Xbox or my 950, I only have it turned on on my SP4 to save each version of Cortana getting into discussions "Sorry I didn't catch that", I use the Xbox commands.

    I've owned and upgraded every Xbox, I started doing it for my Son when he was a child, he's all grown now, and he buys his own now. I bought the original and the 360, first for him and then myself, the XBOXONE and now the One X for myself. I never balked at the Kinect, I like the ease of logging in just by walking in the room, and the superior Skype video! I started loving seeing my grandkids in huge 75 inches HD from halfway around the world, it felt futuristic today. I had committed to buying the XboxOne X early in 2017 as Christmas present to myself. As the time grew near I started feeling caution creeping in. So announced to my wife, I think I'll wait till next year to upgrade to the new Xbox. Because I bought First Surface RTM (?) about 6 or 7 years ago(?) a gift, the first one out of the box did not work, so we took it back got a new one, and all's fine. Shortly after getting it, it is no longer being supported! Windows was moving on, I was caught. However, I continue to use this Tablet as the Excellent camera it is. I love it for that. I bought a Surface Pro 4 recently last year and it did not work right out of the box. i promptly sent it back and got my money back. When I upgraded from my 360 to the Xboxone, all my games collected was no longer supported! i was disappointed, but caught, but I played Destiny non stop so I was alright! Windows come lately finally gets it and started to bring the old games back on line, should have did that at first, would have been oh so better for them. I wanted the Windows phone but did not want to get caught. I liked the Zune, but was afraid to bite, luckily I did not. I bought the Xbox elite Controller for a cool 150 bucks in one year to the day, it stopped working, I was caught again. So all that being said, I was hesitant to jump on this bleeding edge, so i intended to wait 6 months to see what issues start showing up. However, my wife, lovely as she is, thought it a Super idea to surprise me and to give me the XboxOne X as my Christmas Gift!. I acted surprised and happy, but i had trepidation. I wondered what would come out and get me this time. I had heard the Kinect was not directly supported which was my one reason i was shying away from the early jump. But i did not realize how bad the situation for the Kinect was until I went on line and started to look for the adapter on Christmas day, and found prices of 179, 199, 240, 799! then, I knew, I was caught again. My wife keeps saying, we can take it back, but, i am not a 'taker-backer', nor am I without gratitude for a gift given in good faith. I will live and learn to adjust, find another means, hopefully, to use my new XBOX to skype with my grandkids, and auto login, hopefully. I don't know how Microsoft makes it decisions, but I wish they would consult me first! By the way, I upgraded to windows 10 on the bleeding edge! Why? You ask. Those Microsoft VR glasses, that I did not know was not coming out for at least a year after the debut of Windows 10. I thought they were coming out concurrent, to listen to the hype that was going on. When they finally started showing up, 12 to 18 months later, hyped, as Developers accessories, $3000! Caught again. When will I learn?
