In November 2013, Microsoft released its third home console, the Xbox One. Marketed as an "all-in-one entertainment system," the Xbox One competed with Sony's PlayStation 4 and Nintendo's Wii U consoles, as well as other home media devices such as Apple TV and Google TV. The console includes an updated version of the Kinect sensor, used for both motion detection and voice recognition. Microsoft emphasized the Xbox One's ability to integrate many forms of entertainment onto one platform by allowing users to watch television through the console, engage in chats over a built-in edition of Skype, and multitask using split screens for apps. Gamers can also record and share captures of their gameplay. During the initial unveiling of the console, many players worried about certain features of the Xbox One, such as its restrictions for used games, its constant online connectivity, and the mandatory use of the Kinect, which created privacy concerns. In response, Microsoft dropped all these policies. The Xbox One sold over one million copies within the first 24 hours of its release.
