Microsoft announces slew of new features for online service during E3 presser

Microsoft has announced a raft of new features for its Xbox Live service, leading with the announcement of YouTube support and live television, all supported by voice activated commands.

The live tv service will build on the existing partnerships between Microsoft and local TV providers such as Sky and Canal.

Also listed in the announcement was the addition of Microsoft's own search engine: Bing. All searching will be able to be activated by voice, audiences were told.

More than one million songs will also be available via voice command on XBL.

"We make it simple by bringing all of your entertainment together in one place," the Microsoft representative told listeners, making good on the publisher's expectations of entertainment focused announcements.
