To celebrate Microsoft flying the white flag and bringing Alexa integration to the Xbox One, Amazon has released an fantastic 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.
Ever since the Xbox One launched in 2013, fans of the platform have been asking about avatars.
The Xbox Skill feature for Cortana and Alexa has also been added, letting you navigate the menus and interact with Xbox through Cortana and Alexa-enabled devices.
The Xbox Skill for Cortana and Alexa is available today in the US. 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. Today we are excited to launch our latest entertainment option, Dolby Vision HDR video streaming support across Xbox One S and Xbox One X!
'That was something': Trump left speechless after Kanye visits White House
President Donald Trump in the Oval Office at the White House in Washington, U.S., October 11, 2018 . He said that Trump had given him (we assume metaphorically) "a Superman cape " to help do good.
Lastly, this new Xbox One system update adds five additional languages to Narrator, including Spanish, Portuguese, Polish, Swedish, and Dutch. For now, Dolby Vision HDR support is tied to Netflix's library of compatible content, via the dedicated console app. You can use the new Photobooth feature to take pictures of your new Avatar to share around the network, or use as your gamerpic if you so choose.
The new update should be available now through your console, although your device will eventually update automatically. An Australian version of English language for Narrator is also being added. To enable Dolby Vision on the console, navigate to Settings - Display and sound - Video output - Video modes - Allow Dolby Vision. 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. Keep in mind the new Xbox Skill is only available for users in the United States, so if you are outside of the U.S., you are only getting the new Xbox Avatars, Dolby Vision streaming, and new langauges for Narrator.
After securing the right hardware, enabling Dolby Vision is relatively simple on the Xbox One.
