When you open your Xbox One this Friday you’ll also see Bing doing some impressive features with your voice. Watch the video below with Xbox Live’s Major Nelson to see it in action.

It was back in October that we really got a first good look at how the new Friends App on Xbox One will look. This is the place on your Xbox that you’ll be able to browse the profiles of all your friends on Xbox Live. You can view their stats, achievements, current activity, Gamerpic, and more. Speaking of their gamer pic, those are now in full HD and look gorgeous with the new UI on Xbox One. You can become part of history and design a Gamerpic for Xbox One today. Details below.

With Xbox One being released in less than a month, it definitely is a bit of an odd situation.

New Friends App on Xbox One caught on tape

The Xbox One is launching in a little over a month. While we have the overall picture of the console, there’s still a lot minute details to learn about the console itself and the software running on it.

Xbox Live’s Major Nelson, aka Larry Hryb, just shared a video of how the Friends App will look and function on Xbox Live. Let’s watch it after the break.

Microsoft recently made the decision to drop their Point system from Xbox Live. It was a move that many people on Xbox Live have been wanting for quite some time. While you could get discounts on Microsoft Points (thus saving money), the system itself had a few annoyances that many aren’t mourning the loss of. Now Microsoft is refreshing their Xbox Live Reward program to reflect changes to the loss of Microsoft Points. Details after the break.

Looks like our Xbox LIVE gaming drought has come to an end as Microsoft and Gameloft have released UNO & Friends (listed as UNOFriends in the Store) for Windows Phone 8 today. The free online game allows you to challenge your friends and family to a competitive bout of UNO, all from the convenience of your phone.

These type of online multiplayer games have been yearned for by many Windows Phone users as we only have a handful of such titles, though that list is slowly growing in 2013. Combined with the free pricing point, it should ensure that there are plenty of users to challenge.
