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

Xbox One Update Brings Amazon Alexa Integration, Next-Gen Avatars, Dolby Vision Xbox One October System Software Update Rolling Out; Brings New Avatars and More
| 13 October, 2018, 05:42

To celebrate Microsoft flying the white flag and bringing Alexa integration to the Xbox One, Amazon has released an incredible bundle which includes the console, the National Basketball Association 2K19 game worth $60 and the Amazon Echo Dot, worth $50, all for the usual price of the console, be that the Xbox One or Xbox One X.

The catch here is that you're not talking to the Xbox One directly.

In addition, Xbox Skill for Cortana and Alexa is also available as part of the update, with better voice navigation. It's now only available in the USA, 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. The company is introducing some major new features with the latest major update for the Xbox One system, launching much-awaited features like the next-gen Avatars. Again, there's a catch: you need to actually have a TV that supports Dolby Vision HDR connected to your Xbox One. Netflix is the first streaming service that will provide this stuff, but other services (such as Amazon Prime) will follow soon.


And lastly, Narrator is getting upgraded with support for five new languages: Spanish, Portuguese, Polish, Swedish, and Dutch. Once enabled, you will be able to use your voice to turn on/off your console, adjust volume, launch games and apps, take screenshots, and much more. With new content every month, the Avatar Store is a diverse marketplace of clothing, outfits, props, and accessories to make your Avatar even more unique. 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. The new Xbox Avatar Editor also enables you to compare and choose which version of the Xbox Avatar best represents how you want to be seen on Xbox Live. Diving into the console's advanced video settings, a single checkbox enables the feature. There's an Australian version of English coming for Narrator as well, eliminating the need for Australian gamers to select USA or UK English to utilize the app.

"Avatars will appear across your Xbox One".
