Kinect gestures won’t be making the jump to the New Xbox Experience.
In an interview with Windows Central, Microsoft’s Mike Ybarra explained the reasoning as to why gestures won’t be present when the new Xbox UI launches.
“With gestures, the reality was the usage was very, very low,” says Ybarra. “So for now, we've cut that from the New Xbox One Experience. So when we launch on the 12th, they won't be in the product.”
Despite the lack of Kinect interactions – which let users ‘swipe’ planes from left to right – Ybarra says the team will be monitoring user feedback, and should users want the feature back, there’s a possibility it’ll return in the future.
