So, last week Amazon and Microsoft announced a major new feature - the ability to control your XBox from Alexa. While the two companies had certainly been moving closer of late (see: Cortana x Alexa cross-functionality), the announcement was a big surprise, and a welcome one at that. Unfortunately, along with that feature came a host of new issues for a lot of folks using the platform. Understanding the regressions and their implications touches quite a few interesting areas, and I do my best here to distill each of them.
