Today at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles, Microsoft showcased new entertainment experiences coming to the Xbox including the availability of Bing on Xbox in 12 additional markets. Later this year, voice search is expanding to: Australia, Austria, Brazil, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain and Switzerland. Soon users in 15 countries speaking 7 languages will be able to get full voice search support.
In addition, in some countries and languages, you will be able to search for content genres such as comedy, drama and action, and also will be able to use your voice to search user generated content on YouTube.
Bing on Xbox means you spend more time enjoying your entertainment, and far less time hunting for it. Bing on Xbox combines your voice and all your entertainment to make TV more amazing – you are the controller.
