Another highlight of the October 2018 Update is support for Dolby Vision HDR video streaming. You can enable it through the Settings menu. While it's still unclear if the old avatar will be removed permanently in the future, you still have the option to keep it for now. For Windows 10 users, a new Xbox Avatar Editor is also available to download from the Microsoft Store for Avatar tweaks on the go. The features in this update allow you to use more voice interactions, more easily watch HDR movies with streaming services, and personalize your Avatar.The Xbox Skill feature lets you interact with your Xbox using Alexa or Cortana devices, with a greater degree of precision than the previous Kinect voice commands. The feature allows players to control their Xbox One through the devices with commands such as turning the console on and off, launching games, capturing screenshots and video, and volume control. Look for the Xbox Skill in the Alexa Skill Store or the Cortana Skill Store to get started, and it's easy to set up from there.

Dolby Vision support is now included for video streaming on supported LG TVs, with Dolby's standard going further than regular HDR10 content in colour accuracy and HDR depth.
