Avatars will appear across your Xbox One.
One of the notable new features in the update is support for Amazon's Alexa voice assistant, which can be enabled via a skill. It's now only available in the U.S., but downloading either persona's Skill Store will get you started and let you use an Amazon Echo to turn on or launch a particular game.
Amazon will soon offer a package deal for US purchases of qualified Xbox One X and Xbox One S bundles that also includes an Echo Dot. Netflix is the first streaming service that will provide this stuff, but other services (such as Amazon Prime) will follow soon.

Finally, the October 2018 Xbox One update also includes Dolby Vision video streaming and new languages for Narrator on Xbox One, including Spanish, Portuguese, Polish, Swedish, and Dutch, as well as an Australian version. 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.
You can take a quick look at the new avatars and the Dolby Vision option in the gallery below. Dolby Vision enables select TVs to deliver enhanced HDR with dynamic scene-by-scene precision and accuracy versus standard HDR, which is static for the entire movie/show you are watching.
The new update should be available now through your console, although your device will eventually update automatically. Diving into the console's advanced video settings, a single checkbox enables the feature. We're also adding an Australian version of English language for Narrator, so Australian users will no longer have to select United States or United Kingdom English to use Narrator. This feature completes the Dolby duo, as Microsoft already added support for Dolby Atmos spatial sound to the Xbox One in late 2017. Until then, enjoy the October Update and happy gaming!
