You remember Xbox Avatars, right? When they were launched on Xbox 360 people were crazy about them, but with time gamers started settling down with them. Well, the good news is you will soon see these Avatars again on your Windows 10. This good news was brought by Xbox Live’s director of programming, Larry Hryb, aka “Major Nelson” on Twitter.

The new Avatar App will let you change your Xbox Avatar or create a completely new one. You can also make purchases through the Avatar Store and any change you made through the App will show on your Xbox consoles. Major Nelson further stated, that if you’re a user of Windows 10 Preview then you can try this App right now, but its not fully functional (Only Basic Functionality will Work). The App also has a feature called “Photobooth” which is currently not available.


Mark Guim of Windows Central uploaded a video on YouTube that shows some functionalities of the App. Check the video below:
