tstone: Accotding to the version number I now have the update. Everything working as advertised except voice commands. Tried all the suggestions from the support forum and recalibrated the Kinect, but still no joy. Doesn't recognise voice commands at all. Feeling a bit silly talking to the Xbox with no reaction from it!

D'oh, user error. It helps to set the language recognition to 'on'.cry
Works nicely most of the time. Very cool. Does anyone know if I should be using Australian English or English English? Australian seems to work fine. I thought there would be a New Zealand English option for the language?

I have been jumping between regions to adjust the language recognition.  I've found for my accent the regions worked from best to worst British English -> US English -> Australian English.

Edit:  For clarity I'm not in the preview, I was just setting my xb1 to the 'wrong' region to enable voice.

I just updated my xbox, and there is no 'New Zealand' options for spoken language. Only Australian, British, American, Canadian. The Australian one seems to work alright for me, but I thought they were doing a dedicated one for New Zealand

I have a British accent but its is a strong dialect.  For something like the Xbox 1 and all of its processing power, I am really surprised that they never implemented a voice training program - considering there has been one in windows for quite some time.

Does the Australian one actually support the "On" command yet?

Seriously?  How hard can it be to support one word - "On"?  So in other words I have to continue to leave my console set to US just so I can tell it to turn on.
