Xbox users will be able to change their avatar on the fly by using a Windows 10 Mobile phone and this app
Right now, those installing the Technical Preview of Windows 10 Mobile are able to test out a new feature. This new capability allows them to remotely change an Xbox avatar from their Windows 10 Mobile powered handset. All they need to do is install the Xbox Avatar App. It is a pretty hefty file for an app, weighing in at almost 147MB.

Once installed on a Windows 10 Mobile phone, users will be able to create a new avatar for their Xbox account and even design a new look for it by changing clothes, accessories and features. They will be able to take a picture with their avatar, and save it to a new device.

Back in April, Microsoft released a similar app for PC users only. Now, the software giant has made it completely mobile. For those Xbox users who obsess over their avatar more than how they look in real life (we know you're out there), this is the app that they've been dreaming of.

It is actually a phrase that means "while being out." In other words, you could be walking down the streets of Dusty Roads, Kansas when the urge hits you to chnge your avitar for Xbox. With a Windows 10 Mobile phone and this app, you can scratch this itch so to speak. Regards. Alan F.

But people will still appreciate this despite other companies having developed their own Hey, as long as you give people what they want, then you're good to go. BTW, keep that right fist away from the nozzle.
