After the update my "Xbox On" command won't work?
Yes I know I have to 'manualy' turn it on the 1st time, after the update had downloaded and all that stuff. But now it's all up n running again, and all other voice commands appear to be working. I've checked in Settings > Power & Startup..... And I'm
set to 'Power mode'. 'instant-on'. As before. Also the box is still Ticked for 'Wake up Xbox by saying "Xbox on". So why is it, after saying "Xbox ON" in so many ways, even my cat thinks I've gone crazy. Nothing happens? From normal volume speaking (that worked
fine before) to being up close n personal with kinect almost kissing it... Nothing I've even ran the Kinect recalibrate thing.. Still nothing. Any ideas guys?
A. If you are using the Xbox One “Instant On” (the low power state that allows you to instantly power up your console by saying “Xbox On”), your console automatically checks for updates when you turn it off. Once we make the update available (on Tuesday,
December 10th, 5:00 PM PT) this means the following will happen:
Your console will automatically download the update after you turn it off. Once the update has been downloaded in the background, your console will power completely down.
Please note: You will need to manually power your console back on after the update has been downloaded. Because the update will power your console completely down, the “Xbox On” voice command won’t be available
until after the update is fully installed.
When you turn the console on you’ll see the update being applied. After that, your Xbox One will reboot. You’ll know the update is installing when you see the Xbox logo on the green background (like at the top of this post.) This can take anywhere from 2-5
minutes. Once the update has finished installing, you’ll boot to the Home screen and you’re all set.
Don’t worry, if you are out of town for the holidays, you console also does regular checks for updates and will download it in the background even if you have not used you Xbox One in a couple of days.
Mine works fine most of the time, but I have figured out that every now and then you have to unplug it for a minute or so and then plug it back in. Then everything works fine. I would give that a shot. As medieval as it sounds, I bet it helps.
Let me add my voice to those for whom "Xbox On" does not work, either before or after the up date except for a weird two times that I tried it just after doing the "Xbox Turn Off" bit. Even that does not work now. All other voice commands continue to work
