Learning voice commands for Xbox One
One way to learn voice commands is to start talking to your Xbox One by saying "Xbox." Xbox One will show you a few basic voice commands (in green text) in response.
If you say "More shortcuts," the list of all voice commands appears.
Try saying any of the commands. For example, say "Bing" to search using Bing.
Using voice commands on any screen
To find out which voice commands are available on a screen, say "Xbox, select." When the screen text changes color, you can say anything that appears in green.
For example, if you're in the Store and you say "Xbox, select," a number of items will appear in green. You can say any of the items highlighted in green to go to that item or area.
