Here’s a bit of info we missed in our new Xbox Dashboard preview: When the update hits Australian consoles today, it’ll bring with it the long-awaited voice control option for Kinect. You can shout your demands for ABC iView, SBS On Demand, YouTube, Daily Motion and Crackle, with ninemsn video content expected soon.

The voice control system went live for American and British English, Mexican Spanish and Japanese in November 2010, but took over a year to reach our delightful girted shores.
