"You will see your own Avatar on your profile, as well as the profile pages of anyone who has chosen to represent themselves as an Avatars", explains Director of Program Management for Xbox Platform, Jason Ronald. Remember, Windows 10 runs on thousands of different configurations, while Xbox One consists of just three. Microsoft designed its new Avatars to be more inclusive, and there's a built-in Avatar Store where you can purchase new Avatar items. In addition to all the items that are available at launch, we also have a new Avatar Store where you can obtain even more new Avatar items, including licensed designs from Halo, Gears of War, and more.
Amazon's virtual brain Alexa and Microsoft's Cortana can now turn on Xbox devices, launch games, take screenshots and more under an integration between the game console and digital assistants that goes live today. You can still use your Xbox Original Avatar, according to Microsoft, which is still an option, if the new Avatar system isn't appealing to you. That means that you'll be able to talk to Alexa-enabled devices, such as an Echo, and control your Xbox One with it. It's now only available in the U.S., but downloading either persona's Skill Store will get you started and let you use an Amazon Echo to turn on or launch a particular game. To set up Alexa, say, "Alexa, open Xbox". Dolby Vision on Netflix with a premium subscription will be supported at launch with more Dolby Vision apps adding support in the coming months. To enable Dolby Vision on the console, navigate to Settings - Display and sound - Video output - Video modes - Allow Dolby Vision. Don't have one? Don't even have an Xbox One?
