Bing Voice Search Coming To Xbox

Later this year, Bing search will take on a new platform: the Xbox entertainment/gaming console. And to prove that it’s all cutting edge stuff in the gamers’ world, Bing will be offering a voice-based search engine (in addition to a traditional text/type-based search) to help users find games, movies and TV shows, music and other content that’s available via the Xbox.

From the Bing blog post:

By combining all this content with the power of Bing’s deep search expertise, Microsoft Tellme’s voice technology and the magic of Kinect, we’ll be able to provide instant access to the expansive catalogue of entertainment options on Xbox Live. You say it, Xbox finds it, and you can enjoy it faster. Voice search works across media types and across apps so you can focus on deciding what to enjoy rather than where and how to find it.

Bing on Xbox will search services like Netflix, Hulu Plus and ESPN. In a separate news release, Microsoft also says it’ll be bringing YouTube to Xbox — and that, too, will be accessible via Bing voice search.

Bing search on Xbox will initially be available around the holiday season in the English language in the US, Canada and UK.
