The remaining stock of the 35+ million-unit product line will be sold off by retailers and customers will continue to have support on the Xbox One and Xbox 360, as long as those devices remain operational. Kinect 2.0 was created to be an essential part of the Xbox One, but Microsoft did a 180 following early negative reactions to the console. The Kinect for Xbox One was mostly used for voice recognition and occassionally to snap photos and scan QR codes to connect gamers to DLC faster. The peripheral's core sensor - the Kinect v4, which is soon to be replaced by the v5 - is used in Microsoft's Hollow Lens augmented reality glasses. It had become clear by that time that the Kinect - or at least its use in gaming - was a phase.
The full body tracking of the Kinect lent itself very nicely to certain genres of games, one of which was dancing.
Microsoft confirmed to Co.Design that it has ceased manufacturing for the Kinect motion sensor. Anticipating voice command technology such as Siri, the Kinect could also process spoken commands such as, "Xbox, go to settings", and offered basic camera functionality for video chatting. Once again, the Kinect is meeting its end. Microsoft will no longer be manufacturing the device - Kinect units now on store shelves are the last ones the world will ever see. Also, laptops with Windows Hello cameras are based on Kinect's tech to recognize people's faces.

These last few years have been tough for the Kinect accessory. "That was our goal with the Xbox One launch", Lapsen said.
"When we introduced Xbox One, we designed it to have the best experience with the Kinect".
This isn't surprising since there weren't a lot of games that utilized the technology in recent years. The extra cost it brought to the system was one of the factors that helped the PlayStation 4 jump into an early lead in the new console war.
