Over the weekend, a new update for the Xbox One started rolling out to users. The update adds in a nice new feature that allows the user to control the sound level of snapped apps. That means that the user can decide which of the two snapped apps is louder than the other.

The update also brings the ability for the user to control volume levels when using Kinect for chat. Optional data tracking for Kinect Chat is also added .The goal of that feature is to improve voice recognition for different accents.

 

Data tracking is an optional feature that sends voice samples to Microsoft to allow them to add more data to the algorithms that are used for voice control. "The more voice samples we have to input into our algorithms, the better and more responsive Xbox One can be to our fans," Larry Hryb explains.
