Microsoft as of now just only supports its own Cortana digital assistant, through its Kinect accessory or a headset. Right now, Cortana has a limited set of skills.

This expansion to Alexa and Google Assistant support mean Xbox user will be able to control their console through Alexa and Google Assistant. It’s not confirmed exactly what features Microsoft will support, but it will probably mean owners of the Xbox One won’t have to give voice commands or use Kinect.

Recently Microsoft Xbox veteran Albert Penello joined Amazon to help and wanted to figure out how to grow Alexa by providing Echo presence in gaming, this integration means an addition to Alexa’s growing presence across devices.
