Change your gamerpic using the Xbox mobile app
Using the Xbox App is the quickest and easiest solution for changing that gamerpic of yours, even though the other two solutions are as easy as this one, just not as quick.

Once you are up and running, click on the icon on the lower right of your screen.
You will then locate your current gamerpic, if any, on the upper left of the screen.
Tap on it to go to the gamerpic selection screen. You will be able to choose a picture of your liking from a vast variety already made available for you.
If you would like to upload your own, you will need to select the first one, which looks like an image icon with a “+” symbol.
You will then be prompted to select your image from your device.
Once you have made your choice, you will then be asked to drag and crop the image to fit into the circle.
When you are done with that, tap on “upload”, then you should be good to go.
Note: It may take a few minutes for the picture to get processed and applied to your profile, making sure it meets Xbox’s community standards and all.
