Customizable GamerPic for your Profile Picture
Give us the option to choose a picture for gamercard pic besides the choice of arts we have right now
[Mod Edit: This idea was merged with similar ideas from Chryrotyro, CHRISALLEN3285, and Hushabey. Thanks, everyone!]
Custom Gamerpics are now available for your Xbox Live profile! You can choose any image for your gamerpic (as long as you follow the Xbox Live code of conduct). You can see more details about customer gamerpics and other new features here: https://news.xbox.com/2017/07/13/custom-gamerpics-console-co-streaming-arena-updates-roll-xbox-fans-today/
remove the absurd age restriction of 18 years or older for custom gamerpics. You can be 17+ for a rated M game but for gamerpics you gotta be 18+????? How absurd is that. I KNOW WE ALL WOULD AGREE ON THIS. PLEASE MICROSOFT, REMOVE THE AGE RESTRICTION ON CUSTOM GAMERPICS. THEIR SHOULD BE NO AGE RESTRICTION.
We have this feature now. This idea should be deleted.
Why is this feature restricted to adult accounts only? Microsoft fix this and allow this feature to be available to everyone.
When I first made my Xbox account it was accidently set as a child account but I had fixed it, but just recently they rolled out the custom gamerpics for 18+ y/o accounts. I could not use this feature as it said I was still underage. After speaking with support, they said since the account was first a child account, I could not do anything but wait 2-3 years. This is ridiculous. I should not have to wait multiple years for something I should have access to currently. I would post my own idea to fix this but I am unable to find where to post it at on the feedback website.
Custom gamerpics not being allowed for anyone under 18 is ridiculous. I spent the past couple hours trying to trick the system into making my kids 18+, by changing their account birthdates, removing from my family account, & reinviting them back as adult accounts. Now have to go back and undo all this to again allow what it's meant to do - place content/time/purchase restrictions on the child accounts. Why not just require the adult account owner approve the gamerpic?!? My kids were so excited for this news only to be crushed to find out that they can't use their family-friendly personal gamerpic. I'd bet my house that a MUCH larger percentage of 18yr olds will try to use inappropriate gamerpics than my kids' age range (8 &10) would.
People should be able to have custom photos, no matter of the age as long as they are not offensive, racist, inappropriate, or involve nudity.

The age restriction on custom gamerpics needs to be lowered to 15+ instead of 18+ All other social accounts let anyone to create their own picture why can't xbox let everyone make their own gamerpic
Old idea (2016) but cool to see it get implemented :)

Yes please, not everyone has the ability to get windows 10 to be able to get the xbox beta. This should be a basic feature. Come on, its 2017.
Hey there, this is only a recent thing. This was posted in November 2016. So back then, it was not available as a option. Idea flagged for a Mod to mark the suggestion as complete. :)
Yep, it's a thing now, but may not have been when this was posted
You CAN have a custome gamer pic
you can have custom gamerpics already just download the xbox beta app on the windows 10 store
This is already a capability, you can upload your custom gamer pics using the Xbox Beta app on Windows or Mobile
In the Xbox Beta App for mobile and Windows 10, you can achieve this!
If I had to guess, limiting our ability to create custom avatars prevents young kids from seeing user pictures of d**ks and whatnot.
Yes! This has always been a need for me. I am getting tired of seeing other people in with my game pic
UPLOADING GAMER PIC: You should be able to do it from you phone as well it stupid how you have to have a camera for your xbox to do it!! You should be able to log in from you phone and do the same thing
