There will be loads of ways to customise your Avatar's appearance, with a wide range of body types and different clothing accessories available. You can also switch back to the original Avatars if you don't like the new ones- AKA Xbox 360 Avatars. "You'll also find Avatars on activity feed posts, Friend blocks on the Home screen, Gamerscore leaderboards, club headers, profile comparisons, and more".

The Xbox October Update also includes Alexa integration. Using one of these AI devices, players can turn their console on and off, launch games, and capture screenshots. While they'll actively represent you all across the Xbox One, you can also use Photobooth for some stylish shots of your own.

Those interested in streaming video get a new boost too, with Dolby Vision HDR support added for Xbox One S and X users.

So far, the only new feature that Microsoft announced for the 19H1 update is upcoming support for mouse and keyboard, and this should start rolling out to select Xbox Insiders in the coming weeks.

The skill will be available in the U.S. today. It just goes to show how much Microsoft really cares about Cortana. Right now, you can test out Dolby Vision in video apps like Netflix (if you have the right 4K HD plan). As part of the new promotion, anyone who purchases an Xbox One S or Xbox One X via Amazon will receive an Amazon Echo Dot as part of a limited time offer.

Other features included in the update are Dolby Vision HDR video streaming support for both Xbox consoles, and five additional languages for its Narrator option. We're also adding an Australian version of English language for Narrator, so Australian users will no longer have to select USA or U.K. English to use Narrator.

For a limited time, United States gamers who purchase an Xbox One S or Xbox One X bundle on Amazon will get the new Echo Dot smart speaker for free. There's an Australian version of English coming for Narrator as well, eliminating the need for Australian gamers to select U.S. or UK English to utilize the app.
