Brand New Xbox Avatars are Now Available to All Xbox One Users

Xbox One Update Brings Amazon Alexa Integration, Next-Gen Avatars, Dolby Vision

Just the other day, I was wondering to myself what had happened to those new Xbox Avatars we were promised a good while back. You'll also find Avatars on activity feed posts, Friend blocks on the Home screen, Gamerscore leaderboards, club headers, profile comparisons, and more. The new Avatar Store will allow you to buy new Avatar items, including licensed designs from Halo, Gears of War, and more.

If you prefer your Xbox Original Avatar, that's okay too!

Xbox's October update is here. For example, if you have the Xbox skill enabled on your Echo just say "Alexa, launch Forza Horizon 4" and this command will automatically turn on your console, sign you in, and launch Forza Horizon 4.

With the October 2018 Update for the Xbox One, users can now control their console with their voice using Amazon's Alexa and Microsoft's Cortana. It was vitally important to Microsoft that everyone would be represented in digital form, which is why you can change virtually anything about your avatar, from skin color to clothing to hair style to mood.

Microsoft is really focusing on Alexa here for the Xbox Skill, so much so that Microsoft is even launching a new deal for the Xbox One X and the Xbox One S where customers can get a free Amazon Echo Dot while supplies last.

Another highlight of the October 2018 Update is support for Dolby Vision HDR video streaming. Today we are excited to launch our latest entertainment option, Dolby Vision HDR video streaming support across Xbox One S and Xbox One X! Microsoft will be bringing Dolby Vision support to more apps in the future. Support on more apps will come in the following months.

Lastly, Avatars and Dolby Vision support, five additional languages are being added to Xbox One's Narrator feature: Spanish, Portuguese, Polish, Swedish, and Dutch will be available when the new October update hits. Diving into the console's advanced video settings, a single checkbox enables the feature. An Australian version of English language for Narrator is also being added.

Ever since the Xbox One launched in 2013, fans of the platform have been asking about avatars.
