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.
