Bring back the KInect gestures for xbox Dashboard

They were pretty good easy to use. It is a main attractive for the buyers of xbox one with kinect
If Microsoft brings them back Every one will have the full experience
of kinect as promised. If the gestures come back with few more new features and gestures the users will be able to use xbox eita an ease rather than using controller even for Dashboard

    I liked the gestures, but most importantly I liked the scan a code feature so I didn't have to manually enter the code...

    They never removed the gestures. Lol You just gotta enable them in the settings now. They just want you to forget about that heap of junk and I don't blame them. The Kinect sucked although a good idea at first.

    Kinect is controversial. I owned every XBox since the first one and when Kinext came out I only thought "WTF is this?" A camera spying on me, plus a microphone? Almost no games to use it with. Waving your arms around standing in front of you TV looks ridiculous. Later I really bought one for physical traning games and Kinect only sucked. Didn't work at all. Let it die, it's completely useless.

    It’s not happening. No one used them outside of a tiny minority. They’re a memory and CPU hog. In case you haven’t noticed they’re eliminating all of the dashboard Kinect features, almost certainly in favor of Cortana speakers taking over those functions.

    Sometimes it's easier to just be hands free. Not being able to say "Xbox Select" anymore is really frustrating

    My children playing with only kinect games, I dont want to open games for them...

    Besides when the xbox one launch event they said "Kinect gesture supported dashboard" and after the couple of years some features gone with software update!

    I dont care how many kinect sold by microsoft, we bought kinect and microsoft should keep word!

    I guess Microsoft is very unashamed corporation...

    Yeah! I bought Xbox One because I love the idea of to use TV, listen to music, watch movies and series with Kinect gestures and voice, without need to take any controller.

    I was very bored when Microsoft finished this functions.

    Me personally I liked the hand gesture features so in my opinion they need to bring it back so I don't have to turn the controller on every time I need to navigate the internet or through the dashboard.
