If you have an Xbox One, you may have noticed a new system update earlier this week. As part of the update Microsoft added web results into the Xbox One search function. Using Bing as a back end, Xbox One allows users to perform simple, natural language voice searches using the Kinect microphone.
Starting this week with the new update, Xbox Bing will return not only games, music, and video results from the Xbox marketplace, it will also include relevant items from the web.
If you choose to Internet Explorer on your Xbox One, you can now also highlight text on any web page, then press the menu button to activate Bing search for the highlighted terms. This is similar to the Lasso search feature unrolled on Bing for iPad a few years ago.
