Xbox One Trolls Trick People Into Using Bing

When you’re in the middle of an online match against other people, the last thing you want is an interruption — but interruptions are exactly the sort of thing Xbox One trolls will try to induce.

The secret? The trolls use gamertags that are actually Xbox One voice commands. Last time, we saw folks use “Xbox Sign 0ut” to do it. This time, video games brings us footage of trolls that use the gamertag “Xbox Bing.” The set-up is the same: ‘Xbox Bing’ pesters and follows people around in matches of Call of Duty, hoping that the player will get aggravated and say the ‘Xbox Bing’ gamertag aloud — which would then trick their Xbox Ones into searching whatever curses and exclamations the annoyed gamer says.

Kind of silly, kind of genius. And hey, if nothing else, it gets more people using Bing. That’s… good, right?
