For quite a long time now, Microsoft has been teasing a fairly major overhaul to its avatars system, and as of the latest October Xbox One update, these new avatars are now available to everyone. The new system features a host of different, inclusive options, however, that weren't available in the first Avatar rollout on Xbox 360.
Once you've created your new Avatar, you can use the Photobooth feature to capture a great photo of your Avatar to use as your Gamerpic. The Avatars will appear across Xbox One as well as activity feeds, Friend blocks on the Home screen, leaderboards, profiles, and other locations, as they will become a big part of the Xbox ecosystem going forward. Speaking of options, you can also opt to keep your old avatar if you prefer.
With the October 2018 Update for the Xbox One, users can now control their console with their voice using Amazon's Alexa and Microsoft's Cortana. 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.
Right now it's not known which Xbox One S and Xbox One X bundles come with the free Amazon Echo Dot, but that should become clear soon as the deal goes live.

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.
Other additions include the Xbox Skill voice navigation system for U.S. users, Dolby Vision HDR streaming support for Xbox One S and Xbox One X, and new language options for the Xbox Narrator.
Dolby Vision HDR video streaming has been implemented as well, supported on Netflix with a premium subscription. Then, go to Display and sound Video output Video modes Allow Dolby Vision. There's also a new Australian version of the English language Narrator. Whatever the case, many Xbox One bundles already come with free games, like the National Basketball Association 2K19 bundle pictured above, so you're getting multiple freebies as part of this deal. These are: Spanish, Portuguese, Polish, Swedish, and Dutch.
