nice to see they keep adding new commands. hopefully devs follow suit and add them to their apps and games.

Cool, haven't used it much, but nice to know you can start recording and save the video with voice commands. That can really come in handy, especially since I noticed sometimes the "Press Square to save video" doesn't show up, or has a long delay to show up.

I really love SHAREfactory, and how fast it loads the clips, I do hope they add more FX and filters down the line though. Also, the regular PS4 video player should add the ability to quickly scroll forward/back with the touchpad like in SHAREfactory.

How does voice command work? I've never used mine on PS4.

You either need a headset w/ mic or the playstation camera.

Then all you do is say "Playstation _______"

Thanks. Weird, that I got disagree votes, but thanks to you sir.

I don't understand why Sony didn't put a mic AND speaker on the Dualshock 4 controller. The same way the PS Vita has it. It would have made a ton of sense. Could have easily implemented voice controls through that.

I thought the same thing, I mean the controller has a speaker why not the Mic too. Oh well my Boise headset is fine.

It would be hard to put them far enough apart to avoid feedback I think but I wondered the same
ColeMacGrath  +   577d ago
It would probably consume more battery which would cause it to drain even faster unless there is a switch.

I think they missed the ones where you can now launch apps with voice.....or did that not happen yet? I haven't tried update.
uth11  +   578d ago
Weren't you able to launch apps with voice prior to this?
GarrusVakarian  +   578d ago
Yeah. There have only been 4 new voice commands added with the latest FW update i believe.
Bennibop  +   578d ago
You could not launch apps that were in tv and video option such at netflix, amazon and bbc etc
Conzul  +   577d ago
Not sub-tiled apps like IGN or Netflix.
Predaking77  +   577d ago
I like that PS4 doesn’t require a camera to use voice commands so people that doesn't want the camera are still able to use them.
Notramagama  +   577d ago
That ruins the point though for the most part. If you have to turn on a controller, voice commands lose the majority of their usefulness.
Predaking77  +   577d ago
That would be true if voice commands response is %100 accurate every time which on xbone is just %70 to %80.

So having the option to work with both voice commands and the controller is crucial.

Let us not forget that there is still this unidentified connector next to the standard earplug jack. The voice command is really responsive, just say the command clearly. Sony are gradually rolling things out.
AceBlazer13  +   577d ago
Voice Commands are fun the first few times but the controller is still better.
Ol_Boy  +   577d ago
Voice commands are lame. It's so gimmicky. I guess it's good for the people who want them but I definitely won't be using any voice commands on my PS4. Pushing a button or two is way more efficient then speaking to a console lol.

the hypocrisy of the sony fanbase is with no bounds. after so much bashing of the kinect now you say voice commands are cool? makes you feel futuristic? you r the cancer of the gaming community
