Mine is connected to my original Xbox One.

I use the voice commands like "Xbox Go To TV" or Xbox Record That/Take A Screenshot" quite often. Beats having to bring up the guide button to record/take a pic.

I used to use snap too :/

Hey Cortana can do those things now I'm pretty sure with just a mic. And to answer your question no, I barely got use out of my kinect with the 360.

I'll set Cortana up once I get the One X. I hear Microsoft no longer makes kinect adapters

lol I actually use the Kinect way more now than I did during the 360

I did use it when I streamed on Mixer, but now that I have my X and no adapter, I can't use it at the moment.

I messed with it for about a day when I first got it with the console. I didn't use the TV features, though, and I didn't really see the benefits of voice commands when all I have to do to turn the console on is press a button on the controller. All I do on my consoles is play games, nothing more.

I ended up selling it for about $100, because at the time they were still in fairly high demand. Cool piece of tech, but I was much happier to have the $100 in my pocket than I was to have the Kinect. Apparently others felt the same.

My 11 year old uses it for party chat instead of a headset so I can hear what older kids are saying to him through the tv speakers.
If it bleeds, we can kill it.

I use mine to go to apps or games and to take screenshots/videos but other than that I don't use it.

I use the old voice commands because Cortana is slow so unless they've fixed that since implementing it I'll stick with the old style.
