You will see your own Avatar on your profile, as well as on the profile pages of anyone who has chosen to represent themselves as an Avatars.

If you still don't have an Xbox One S, you can purchase one on Amazon.

You can take a quick look at the new avatars and the Dolby Vision option in the gallery below.

At launch, there will also be a new Avatar Store rife with new Avatar items from games like "Halo", "Gears of War", and a selection of other titles. Of course, there is still the option to keep your original avatar if you've grown fond of it. This expands Xbox voice control beyond using Kinect or a headset, enabling you to turn your console off and on, adjust the volume, launch games and apps, stop and start Mixer broadcasts and more.

The skill requires an Alexa- or Cortana-enabled device such as a Windows 10 PC, Amazon Echo, Harman Kardon Invoke speaker, or Sonos One. To set up Alexa, say, "Alexa, open Xbox".

Another key feature is Dolby Vision streaming, which is Dolby's HDR format.

Another highlight of the October 2018 Update is support for Dolby Vision HDR video streaming.

Dolby Vision support is now included for video streaming on supported LG TVs, with Dolby's standard going further than regular HDR10 content in colour accuracy and HDR depth. Dolby Vision on Netflix with a premium subscription will be supported at launch with more Dolby Vision apps adding support in the coming months.

Xbox is committed to being more accessible and inclusive.

This update rolled out on Thursday, and Xbox Avatars are finally returning in an upgraded form, Cortana and Alexa are getting some new skills, and Dolby Vision support will be added to Xbox One S and Xbox One X. Keep in mind the new Xbox Skill is only available for users in the United States, so if you are outside of the U.S., you are only getting the new Xbox Avatars, Dolby Vision streaming, and new langauges for Narrator.

Restart your Xbox One console. Until then, enjoy the October Update and happy gaming!
