A couple of weeks after Custom Gamerpics started to roll out to Xbox Insiders on the Preview Alpha Ring, Preview Ring 3 & 4 participants can now upload their own profile image on Xbox Live. According to Xbox’s Brad Rossetti, the new feature should automatically appear in the profile section of the Xbox One dashboard, but Xbox Insiders who don’t see the option yet can reboot their console to enable it.
