Customize your mini-me with Xbox Avatars on Windows 10 Mobile

Microsoft has had a Windows Phone app for tweaking and styling your Xbox Live avatar for some time. But, it's equally some time since it saw any kind of update. For Windows 10 there's a new, universal app, Xbox Avatars.

It was first made available for PCs and now is in the Store for folks using the Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview to take a look at.

Xbox Avatars

Essentially it's much the same as the Xbox Extras app we've known from Windows Phone. With the app you can tweak your Xbox Live avatar or create a new one and style it up with a bunch of different looks. Every part of the body is customizable and if you're looking for something else, there's a web link to the online store where you can buy the extras of your dreams.

Appearance wise the app is as we're coming to know from Windows 10 Mobile apps. Slide out menu on the left hiding the options and not a lot else. It's a simple way to style your mini-me and it works well. No signs of any crashes or showstopping bugs, it feels very much like a fully finished app.
