YouTube app lands on the Xbox One with voice and gesture controls

YouTube today announced the launch of a YouTube app for Xbox One. Those lucky enough to have Microsoft’s console already can enjoy the following features specific to the device:

  • Voice – Control the app just by saying “YouTube” wherever you are in the app. Commands like play, pause, and fast forward will instantly pop up on screen.
  • Gesture – Grab the screen to scroll through videos, and use your hand to pick which one you want to watch.
