Not only has the Xbox Insider Team helped share and gather feedback on the updated Xbox Avatar Editor and experience throughout 1810, but as individuals, we’ve been excited to create our own Avatars! Now that most of our community has had the chance to take the Xbox Avatar Editor for a spin, we wanted to unveil our own Avatars so you can get to know the team a bit better.

Get a glimpse of our personal style below and learn what some of the members of the team do to keep the lights on.
