Xbox One October 2018 update rolling out now

After months of testing, Microsoft is releasing the October update for the Xbox One family of gaming consoles today.

Microsoft and Amazon are partnering up for a new Xbox One bundle package.

The Avatar Editor lets you choose from a wide range of body types and clothes, while the new Avatar Store lets you obtain more Avatar items, including licensed designs from Halo, Gears of War, and more. They will be present on activity feed posts, Friend blocks on the Home screen, Gamerscore leaderboards, club headers, and more. Of course, there is still the option to keep your original avatar if you've grown fond of it. That means that you'll be able to talk to Alexa-enabled devices, such as an Echo, and control your Xbox One with it.

This feature allows supported TVs to deliver enhanced HDR images, and is now supported by the Netflix app for Xbox. Microsoft designed its new Avatars to be more inclusive, and there's a built-in Avatar Store where you can purchase new Avatar items. Similar to technologies like HDR+, Dolby Vision offers dynamic HDR based on the scene, while standard HDR is the same throughout the movie or TV show that you're watching. Dolby Vision on Netflix with a premium subscription will be supported at launch with more Dolby Vision apps adding support in the coming months.

And lastly, Narrator is getting upgraded with support for five new languages: Spanish, Portuguese, Polish, Swedish, and Dutch. To enable Dolby Vision on the console, navigate to Settings - Display and sound - Video output - Video modes - Allow Dolby Vision. While it's not exactly a new language, the firm also added Australian English. If you'd like to help create the future of Xbox and get access to early features, download the Xbox Insider Hub app on your Xbox One or Windows 10 PC today.

After securing the right hardware, enabling Dolby Vision is relatively simple on the Xbox One. Microsoft hasn't announced the features for that though, so there should be more news soon.
