You need to be in the insider program in order to access it
I am in the insider program, and am part of the alpha ring. :dead:

Edit: had to sign in before clicking the link :tongue:

I presume you're going to use the same pic on Xbox as S7? :tongue:

My Xbox App on my android got an update today. It says,
"WHAT'S NEW
-Upload custom pics for clubs and gamerpics
-Use your gamerpic as your club profile pic
-Hide individual posts in the activity feed
-Pin your favorite item to the top of the activity feed"

It's interesting that custom gamerpics is only available to those in the Alpha Insider Ring, yet the app says I can upload a custom gamerpic.
I've been looked through the app for a few minutes and couldn't find anywhere to change my gamerpic.

Same here, I also got a message saying that you're able to change them from the Xbox app on PC but I can't find anything on either platform.

The feature isn't accessible in any of the apps(yet), even to those in the alpha ring.

From what I understand, the only way(legit) to use the custom pic is to throw it on a USB flash drive and plug it into your One. OneCloud doesn't work yet for the feature either(but will).

For those who can't access the page, here is the current requirements:
1080x1080 pixels
JPG and PNG file types only
Only adults(18+) can use this feature(minor's accounts can not, at least right now anyway).

Hmm, this looks good I've seen a few nice gamer pics. But I cannot use this feature although in the program?

Are you in Alpha ring? I know they said this would be one of the longest things being tested in the program, so I imagine all waves will get it eventually before it's public.

Yeah, that's why I'm confused! Ah well guess I can wait a little while longer

Yeah, it should come out 1-2 weeks prior to E3 & like you said, all waves should receive it before then.

For those not in the alpha ring and want a custom gamer pic, you can use one if you sign into an Xbox that's currently in alpha ring. I know it's not the best workaround, but some people may have friends/family that can do it for them/let them on their Xbox, etc.

You can get it here if you don't have it.

You can get it here if you don't have it, you will also need windows 10.
Just checked and for some reason I'm still not able to do it, it is on console right? Has there been an update for it?

You need the Xbox Beta app for your windows 10 computer. I probably should have made that a bit more clear in my post.

Ahhh no worries, I thought you could just do it via the console! Thanks!
