We've already heard how Xbox is "actively monitoring performance and usage trends" in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, and apparently, this includes restrictions on upload content. According to the Xbox Support beta site, users can no longer upload content such as custom gamerpics for the time being.

The site, which also indicates that refund processing is presently delayed by potentially "72 hours or more", says the following upload features have been temporarily removed:

"As people look to gaming for social connection, we're seeing record numbers across Xbox Game Pass, Xbox Live, and Mixer. To streamline moderation and ensure the best experience for our community, we're making small adjustments. We've temporarily turned off the ability to upload custom gamerpics, club pics, and club backgrounds."

It's worth noting that not everything is affected - you can still upload game clips, for example. But if you were hoping to change your gamerpic in the near future, you'll face some restrictions for now.
