Xbox app updates on Android and iOS with new custom gamerpic and chat features

The Xbox app updated earlier today for both Android and iOS smartphones and tablets. This latest update brings the app to Version 2011.1117.2133 on Android and Version 2011.1117.2218 on iOS and adds the ability to upload a custom gamerpic avatar from a device’s photo library and create group chats via the Chats tab.

Here’s the full release notes:

New stuff!

  • Custom gamerpics are here -- Set your gamerpic with images from your phone or choose from the Xbox library, directly from the app!
  • Chat improvements -- Message requests are now supported. You can also create group chats by selecting multiple friends when starting a new conversation.
  • View your games -- View and manage all your games remotely, including the full Game Pass catalog.

The Xbox app allows gamers to manage their Xbox video game library, control their Xbox One and Xbox Series X consoles, and communicate with friends from their tablet and smartphone. A Windows 10 Xbox app is also available and all three versions received a rather significant design revamp recently that modernized the experience for the launch of the newer Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X consoles.
