(Pocket-lint) - Domino's is soon to release an app for the Xbox One that will enable you to order a pizza without leaving your sofa.

A deal between Microsoft and Domino's is expected to be officially announced in November which will result in a free app being made available on the console soon after. It will be compatible with voice and gesture control for Xbox One owners with a Kinect sensor, with create-your-own-pizza features have their own hand motions.

It is understood that the app will also have similar functionality to those for other devices, such as the iPad, iPhone and Android. It will find your nearest Domino's takeaway using a postcode and once the pizzas have been ordered, their progress will be displayed in real time, from the making to the delivery.
