Upthread I said recently that Xbox One’s live TV interface and Plex were the only two main apps left that hadn’t patched out Kinect voice commands yet.
Well, the other shoe dropped. Plex got a big update recently. Not only is the whole interface uglier and slightly less friendly on a controller, “Xbox Pause” and “Xbox Play” and “Xbox Select” don’t seem to do anything anymore. So they’ve basically patched out Kinect support on Plex as well.
The only major app left that still lets me use voice commands is Microsoft’s own “OneGuide”, their Live TV app that lets me watch TV from an antenna, and pause live TV for up to 30 minutes. That’s the only reason left to have a Kinect now. I wonder if they’ll patch out support for Kinect in that as well?
