Xbox's October 2018 Update Rolls Out With New Avatars and More

By Kelly Packard,
Xbox's October update is here. The biggest feature of the update is the redesigned avatars that players have been waiting quite a while for — new avatars were originally debuted at E3 2017. Of course, there is still the option to keep your original avatar if you've grown fond of it.

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.

Major Nelson gives a seven-minute look at the new features in the above video and goes into more detail on his blog.
