Matlab's own documentation says

This is a very, very new addition to Matlab and it is unsurprising that Octave does not implement it yet.

I've changed this report to be a feature request for the development branch of Octave.

In the mean time, this code is equivalent and will work in Octave or in Matlab versions before 2018b

This code idiom of turning an ND-array in to a column vector is very common and I don't think it hurts code readability.

The following is valid MatLab code (2018b)

with result 1 (true).
In octave 4.0.3 i get the error

Differences between octave and matlab are considered a bug (at least according to wikipedia), and as both the FAQ (https://wiki.octave.org/FAQ#Differences_between_Octave_and_Matlab) and the trouble section of the documentation (https://octave.org/doc/interpreter/Trouble.html#Trouble) do not mention this as an exception, I would think so too.
