Xbox One voice commands unavailable in most regions

The Xbox One may be launching in early November, but its voice command functions won’t be available in all 13 regions upon its release according to an official Xbox fact sheet, and it’s currently unknown when or if they will become available in the excluded countries at all.

The regions that will be able to whisper sweet nothings at their Xbox One are: United States, United Kingdom, Canada, France, and Germany. Meanwhile: Brazil, Ireland, Australia, Austria, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand and Spain are left in the cold.

We have contacted Microsoft and requested additional information regarding the excluded regions, and will update accordingly.
