The app, which is currently only available in the UK, can be downloaded now and enables users to select any pizza from the menu.

According to Engadget, users simply shout “Domino’s feed me” and the Kinect sensor will launch the 32MB app. They can then select the pizza of their choice using the controller or just by waving their arms.

As with online orders, Xbox One owners can track the preparation and delivery status of their pizza using the app, which can run in Snap mode, meaning another window can be open at the same time.

This isn’t the first time that pizza and video games have proven such natural bed-fellows. Last year, Pizza Hut launched an app for the Xbox 360 which also allowed users to make their order via the console.
