In a post detailing the update on the Xbox website, Microsoft says that the new Avatars are "expressive, creative and, most importantly, bring to life the community of fans they represent". The new Avatars that are coming with the October update are much more inclusive than the original ones, with customization options such as gender-neutral clothes and diverse body types. You can also switch back to the original Avatars if you don't like the new ones- AKA Xbox 360 Avatars. You'll see the new Avatars on your own profile, in the activity feed and Gamerscore leaderboard, and more.
The Avatar Store is also where users can find licensed designs from various games and new content is expected monthly.
Moreover, Dolby HDR video streaming support has also been included in the update; it's supported through Netflix premium subscriptions.
Once you get it set up, you can use voice commands to power your console on and off, adjust the volume, launch games and apps, start and stop Mixer broadcasts, capture screenshots, and more. That means that you'll be able to talk to Alexa-enabled devices, such as an Echo, and control your Xbox One with it. 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. Until then, enjoy the October Update and happy gaming!
