New, diverse, and graphically improved Xbox Live Avatars launching for everyone in April, and preview program members this month

First announced and shown back at E3 2017, the redesigned Xbox Live Avatars look to be landing on consoles this April.

With information from sources at Microsoft, The Verge writes that not only is the release date imminent, but that those of us in the Preview Program will be invited to this new version this month.

While I’m excited about this new feature – I’ll be sad to lose some of my hard-won rewards from my Xbox 360 days. As a preview member, when I get invited I’ll post some more screens and my own impressions of the new functionality.
