Rejoice! It appears that the ability to change your Xbox gamerpic is returning to the Xbox app on both iOS and Android.

As spotted by one eagle eyed Reddit user, a recent update to the Xbox Beta app has added the function to change your gamer picture. According to the patch notes, users will be able to set their gamerpic with custom images on the phone itself or from a selection in the library.

Other new features also include improved chat functions to ensure players can view message requests within the app and the ability to view and manage all your games remotely. No word has been mentioned as to when owners of the app outside the beta can expect these to roll out.

While this is definitely a step in the right direction, there's still a lot more we'd like to see introduced to the Xbox app. A full achievement tracker, looking for group feature, activity feed, and more would all be greatly welcomed in the future.
