Microsoft already integrated Cortana with almost all of its products, but Xbox One is still missing integration with company’s virtual assistant. Since last year, people have been speculating about possible Cortana integration with Xbox One, but we haven’t had many details about this feature until now.
When asked about possible Cortana integration with Xbox One on Twitter, Xbox’s Mike Ybarra said that Microsoft jas already started working on this feature. However, he didn’t provide any additional details about Cortana coming to Xbox, so everything about it still remains a mystery.
@LODsqua Saw a demo from the team today, coming along great.

Even though Mike Ybarra didn’t say anything about this feature, he’s at least confirmed that Cortana integration with Xbox is indeed in Microsoft’s plans and that we should expect the feature in the future. This is probably a relief for all the users who doubted that Cortana would arrive on the Xbox One.
You probably already know that Microsoft plans to bridge the gap between Windows 10 and Xbox One as much as possible, a plan that includes bringing one platform’s features to the other. Cortana’s presence on Xbox One could be an essential step towards integrating two platforms, allowing many new possibilities to users of both platforms.
Last year, Microsoft showed Xbox users how Cortana would work on this platform without revealing an actual release date. Since then, no further details have been revealed by Microsoft. Also, it is known that Cortana will be compatible with Kinect, so Microsoft’s virtual assistant will probably arrive to Xbox once all its compatibility issues are solved.
