The new system features a host of different, inclusive options, however, that weren't available in the first Avatar rollout on Xbox 360. You will see Avatars on profile pages, activity feed posts, Friend blocks on the Home screen, Gamerscore leaderboards, club headers, profile comparisons, and more.
Commands include power on/off, adjust volume, launch games and apps, start and stop broadcasts on Mixer, capture screenshots, and more. Microsoft is also launching a new Xbox Avatar Store where you will be able to buy Avatar items and accessories for your favourite games like Halo, Gears of War, etc. And if you don't like the new Xbox Avatar, Microsoft will let you get back your original Xbox Avatar by simply switching to the Xbox Original Avatar through the Xbox Avatar Editor. This update comes with several new improvements like updated Avatars experience, Alexa integration, support for Dolby Vision video streaming and more.
These updates are available because of the Xbox Insiders who have helped shape these features, so big thanks to all of you for your valuable input. Look for the Xbox Skill in the Alexa Skill Store or the Cortana Skill Store to get started. As for the new Xbox Avatars, you can use them as you would your old Avatar, using Photobooth for a new Gamerpic and so on. If you have a TV that supports the latest version of Dolby Vision and an Xbox One S or Xbox One X, navigate to Settings on your console. As of today, Netflix is the only video streaming app that supports Dolby Vision on the Xbox One, but Microsoft is looking to add more partners in the future.
Another highlight of the October 2018 Update is support for Dolby Vision HDR video streaming.
