Amazon Alexa support has been available on the Xbox for a while now, but a brand new app has appeared and seems to be introducing a selection of new features.
The application has been spotted on the Microsoft Store by known leaker WalkingCat. Under the name Alexa for Xbox, the store listing delves into a few details about the Alexa app, and what Xbox users will be able to do with it installed.
Xbox has had minimal Alexa support previously, but the new app seems to add a selection of new features, such as being able to show you your shopping list on screen, or play your favourite songs via Xbox. Obviously you will also need an Alexa device to use with the app.
It‘s a new way Xbox can be integrated into your home entertainment system and be used on a daily basis. Alexa can be quite a nifty feature to have on your Xbox, as one user demonstrated perfectly last year, when they used it to quickly boot up their console and dive into DOOM Eternal.

We have recently converted to amazon alexa. Echo dot 4the gen with clock, show 8(amazing) and dot 3rd gen great to communicate to the kids when dinners ready. Comes in handy for music so could be interesting on xbox
I hope that Google Home support is expanded too, and with Microsoft being more open to partners launching apps on their platform and vice versa, I don't see it being far off.
