The Xbox One’s voice commands have the potential to create some exciting new gaming experience. Perhaps you could shout tactics at your players on the pitch, or issue commands to your soldiers on the battlefield… or you could simply troll the other users on Xbox Live.
In an amusing YouTube post, one user shows how by changing their name to “Xbox Sign Off”, they could trigger unintended consequences in their opponents when they read out the player’s name.
Amusingly, this isn’t the only issue caused by voice controls, as this amusing tweet shows:
Watching an advert for Xbox One whilst streaming TV on my Xbox One. Kid in the advert says "Xbox, Off." My Xbox dutifully complies.

Have you ever had any mishaps with the voice commands? Let us know in the comments. If you’re reading this on an Xbox One, you can voice-post a comment by using the command “Xbox Off” (“Off” stands for “Oral Footnote Function”, honest!).
