This Xbox One X bundle packages Microsoft's UHD HDR beast with a matching Charcoal version of the Amazon Echo Dot - and, of course, National Basketball Association 2K19. They're no Miitomo and there's not much avatar-avatar interaction possible, but expressing a little personality to represent you without plastering your face all over Xbox Live never hurt anyone. For Windows 10 users, a new Xbox Avatar Editor is also available to download from the Microsoft Store for Avatar tweaks on the go.
This includes the implementation of "Xbox Skill" for AmazonAlexa and Cortana in the United States, enabling ayone with a voice recognition doodad to navigate and interact with their Xbox using an Alexa or Cortana-enabled device. You can now chose to keep your old avatar, but it's unclear if this will be the case forever.
You can power on/off the console, adjust volume, launch games and apps, start and stop broadcasts, capture screenshots, and more.
The skill requires an Alexa- or Cortana-enabled device such as a Windows 10 PC, Amazon Echo, Harman Kardon Invoke speaker, or Sonos One. To learn more about this new feature, see our previous post.
