Xbox Avatar App Announced for Windows 10 By Microsoft
We have some good news for Windows 10 fans around the world. Microsoft has announced that the Xbox Avatar app is coming to Windows 10. Personally, being a Windows user, I’m really looking forward to this one.
The app will let you change or create a new avatar, similar to the way it did on Xbox and Windows Phone. Not only that, but users will be given access to the store via the Xbox app so that they can buy different upgrades for their avatar.
The app is linked to Xbox, so as soon as you create or make changes to your avatar on the Xbox app, they will appear on the Xbox console as well. Major Nelson announced on Twitter, that users can give the app a try by downloading Windows 10 technical preview.
When you open the app, your current avatar will stand proud in the middle, with menu buttons located on the left side. There is a “Dress Up” section that allows you to change your avatar’s clothes and accessories.
By selecting “Edit Avatar,” you can customize its hair, skin, facial features, shape and more.
Tapping the Xbox Store icon will open the store in the browser. There are a number of items that are free to download, others you will have to pay for. There is a section called “Photbooth,” which is currently unavailable. Either it will be unlocked with a new update or when Windows 10 rolls-out to the public.
