Improved audio controls when using two apps in Snap coming to Xbox One

Posted on May 2, 2014 AT 01:50pm

The next Xbox One update, slated for later this month, will improve Xbox One’s audio options when using Snap, Microsoft’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb revealed today.

In response to user feedback requesting more options for audio levels, Microsoft will add in a sound mixer to the Settings menu that allows players to change which app is louder while juggling two of them using Snap.

And in an effort to improve the Xbox One’s speech recognition through Kinect, Hryb recommended players opt-in to speech data collection under the Settings, Privacy & Online Safety menus.

“The more voice samples we have to input into our algorithms, the better and more responsive Xbox One can be to our fans.”

Any voice data collected by opting in, Hryb stressed, “will be used for product improvement only.”
