a few questions about Xbox One apps RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to develop a web app that uses the functionality of the kinect. A few questions I want to ask is:

    1. Will the virtual keyboard use the kinect to type? Or could I log by voice control/ facial recognition

    2. Could you register on the website by using the information on your xbox id?

    3. If I was to set up a native app, could we implement our own payment method?

    4. Could we get the XboxONE early for development purposes?

    Any information on this would be awesome.

  • This is the wrong forum for Xbox One questions. They haven't announced a widely available public developer platform. They announces a Independent Developer program, which you can find more information here:

  • I'd love to know the process of publishing kinect applications on Xbox One as well. The link you provided Carmine just talks about game publishing  - does this apply to app publishing as well?

  • There have been no announcements made for app development process for Xbox One. You will have to engage the Xbox team through their forums to know if this is something they are going to support.

    The Kinect for Windows program is for developing applications for Windows only.
