Microsoft has introduced a Xbox skill that allows gamers to control their console with their Amazon Alexa or Cortana enabled devices. Some of the devices that can now control your Xbox include a Windows 10 PC, Amazon Echo, Harman Kardon Invoke, Sonos One, or Cortana and Alexa apps on iOS and Android. There is a list of commands to try over on the Xbox Insider Subreddit.

With the Xbox Skill, you can use voice commands to power your Xbox One console, adjust volume, launch games and apps, start and stop broadcasts on Mixer, capture screenshots, and more. It's the fastest way to get into your games and one of the easiest ways to interact with your console for everyday tasks. For example, if you have the skill enabled on your Echo and you're a part of the Insider preview, just say "Alexa, start Rocket League." and this command will automatically turn on your console, sign you in, and launch your game.
it's like a whole shit load of wifi enabled surveillance and you allowed it in the front door.

this is awesome.
