Xbox Avatars app launches for Windows 10 Technical Preview

Microsoft is continuing to deploy revamped universal Windows app for its upcoming Windows 10 OS. Today, the Avatars app is now available to let you customize and manipulate your Xbox gamer avatar.

The app itself is around 35 MB is ready to be used in Windows 10 Technical Preview for PCs and laptops. There is no word about the Windows Phone version, but since it presumably shares the majority of source code, we suspect it will not be long until it is on those devices too.

The Avatars app looks quite nice, although it does continue with the hamburger/split-view paradigm of app design. The music, which is quite jovial, can be disabled under settings in case you find it irritating.

We will have a hands-on video up shortly, but for now if you are the Technical Preview you can grab the app from the Store.
