Xbox One Gets Alexa Skill

Continuing the love between Microsoft and Amazon, yesterday the Microsoft announced the Xbox Skill that allows Amazon Echo, Sonos, and other Alexa-enabled devices control an Xbox One. I love the idea of saying “Alexa, play Halo. I think this is a great start and can not wait to see how this grows. I would love to see things go the other way, make the Xbox One an Alexa enabled device so that you can control Alexa connected devices from your Xbox One.

Currently, the Xbox Skill is in testing with Xbox Insiders but I suspect us normal users will have the Xbox Skill on our own Xbox One pretty soon.

Do we have any Xbox Insiders reading that have tried the Xbox Skill on an Xbox One? Let me know how it works in the comments below.
