Kinect support is gone

I can no longer say "xbox pause" to pause what I'm watching. Was this intentional or will this be fixed?

    I actually just found out that I can say "xbox play" to send a pause command. Seems wrong

    The problem seems to be related to the Xbox remote (IR) support as well. On the remote I cannot press the PAUSE button anymore, I have to press the PLAY button to play and to pause.

    Which remote are you using? It seems they developed the app to respond to a toggle button, but not for universal remotes with separate play and pause. That wasn't always the case so don't know why they changed it.

    I am using an Inteset universal remote.

    Ok, same situation as me then. I've got a Harmony universal, but same separate buttons as you. We've mentioned to @Moussa in other threads that there needs to be configuration for both a toggle button and separate buttons. Hopefully they'll add the functionality for separate play and pause buttons back in.

    I would be happy if they just mapped the PAUSE button to the PAUSE action. The PLAY button can remain dual function if its easier.

    I think us Xbox One w/ Kinect users have to start (sadly) weening off the Kinect sensor.

    MS stopped making it, system-wide support has gone ages ago. it's only a matter of time until it become a glorified Skype camera, I'm sad to say.
    Loved being able to navigate plex with my hands. :(

    Wow, this is the first I"m hearing that they've completely stopped support for the Kinect. What ridiculous timing. They had a giant leap in the voice control market over Amazon and Google and they squandered it.

    Well it isn't gone. If you read my post above, xbox play still works. I think it's because they removed the pause button and play is now a toggle.

    Yep, MS really did have the chance to own this market with good software. They could have easily done a whole lot more than you can with an Alexa/Echo for example since you have both audio and video and most of the time better audio as well. The MIC/Sensors in it were really good as well, not to mention how good the camera was.

    Confirmed when I say "Xbox Pause" the systems says "Can't Pause from here"
    When I say "Xbox Play" it pauses.
    Then when I say "Xbox Play" again, it plays.
    This seems like a accidental mapping bug.

    Additionally, now I can only rewind 10 seconds at a time with plex on Xbox One. Why is that? The last build worked way better than this.

    The pause button/command issue should be fixed in the latest update.
