Announced during the E3 broadcast, "Xbox Daily: Live @ E3", new Xbox Avatars will be releasing in a free update in Spring, 2017 (in NZ, Fall in the US). The new Xbox Avatars will allow people to create a digital expression of themselves, and endlessly customize their avatar "with a huge selection of body types, skin tones, emotions, outfits, and props you can be the person in the mirror or anyone else you can imagine."

A trailer was also released via Twitter by the official Xbox Twitter account:

Xbox Avatars are coming this Spring (US Fall) to the Xbox One and Windows 10.

Hopefully these ones are a bit more front and center, I almost forgot about the Xbox one as he's hidden away in your profile!

A free Avatar version of PlayStation Home for the Xbox, with party games, emotes that work based on your dialogue through voice recognition, and more unlockables based on the games you play, and the activities you participate in would be pretty sweet.

I agree. My kids loved messing around with their avatars on the 360 because you saw them a lot. Not so much with the Xbox One.

This was actually one thing I really liked about 360. Hope they allow for XBox PC, hopefully you can upgrade on existing one... although unlikely.

Nice to see they're adding features, but not really one I care much about, the only time I cared about my avatar was for Kingdom of Keflings, Dorito's Crash Course and Fire Pro Wrestling, those were the only times I actually ever used or cared for my avatar.

Now thats a great idea. Also chuck in netflix style functionality and it will be insane!

Maybe they will add the ability to change your name for free.

They are going to add Refund Policies to compete with pc platforms, so many changing your name for free will become a thing,and maybe will ALLOW you to even change your name.

or am i wrong and sony finally allows people to change their names?

Those look way cooler than the 360 versions that only look like a small step up from the Wii Mii's
Love the augmented arm... (saw Deus Ex on facebook posted a pic of it)

Think I agree with a lot of the others avatars should be more front & centre with more apps and games using your avatar.

i really liked when the Avatar would be randomly popping in on odd pages on the XB360 OS menus
