Xbox One will be able to talk to users, it's been alleged, in a feature Polygon describes as being similar to iPhone's Siri.

The unannounced feature of Microsoft's next-gen console is said to have been revealed by a source "who has tested out the still in-development feature", and who claims that players will be able to have "two-way conversations" with their console via Kinect.

The feature may not be included in time for launch, the site speculates, but if it isn't, it will be added via a post-launch update.

Kinect will also use facial recognition "to scan a room full of people and note if there is someone in the room it doesn't recognize," the site reports.

"It then tells the console owner that there is someone in the room it doesn't recognize and asks the new person to identify themselves. Once the person says their name, Kinect will welcome them and save their information to the console."

And if that doesn't weird you out enough, the console will also let players use Skype to invite others to take over their game remotely, similar to PS4's Gaikai-powered feature.

"In a demonstration of the [remote] feature, a source told us that a message popped up on their screen asking if it was OK if the player they were Skyping with could take over the game," the report continues. "Once the friend took over, the first player was able to watch them play the game. Either player could end the remote play with a button push."

Microsoft has yet to formally announce either feature.
