Product & Tech Community

Customizing your appearance and browsing the Avatar Shop is now more seamless than ever, thanks to the newly redesigned avatar editor experience for mobile devices. We took everything you already love about the avatar editor and made it sleeker, faster, and even easier to use so you can jump right back into the action and play some of your favorite games with the look you want, whenever you want it.

Say hello to the new avatar editor

Over the past several weeks, we’ve been experimenting with a fresh look and feel for the mobile avatar editor with a subset of our community. The results have been fantastic, and we’re now ready to roll out the redesign to everyone on iOS and Android mobile devices. Go ahead—load up the Roblox app on your phone or tablet and start playing around with the new avatar editor! While the functionality is more or less the same as before, we think you’ll enjoy the changes we’ve made, including:

    • A New Look and Feel: We’ve reimagined what a “modern” avatar editor looks like on Roblox. It’s better organized, it’s smoother, and it includes support for light and dark themes. 
    • Create and Save Costumes: You can now save your favorite costumes under the “Characters” tab. With just a few taps, you’ll be able to switch outfits on the fly depending on your mood. 
    • Intuitive Body Style Controls: The “Body Type” and “Body Size” controls have also gotten a refresh. It’s now easier to tell at a glance what modifications you’re making to your avatar.

Get instant access to the Avatar Shop

As you well know, the Avatar Shop is home to a mind-blowingly diverse array of shirts, pants, accessories, faces, bundles, emotes, and gear—and it’s only continuing to expand. One of the biggest opportunities we have now is coming up with an elegant way to show off all of these cool items so players can quickly and easily find the ones they like, try them on, and purchase them if they so choose.

With today’s update, we’ve made it so the Avatar Shop is now fully integrated with the mobile avatar editor. That means things like automatically equipping an item after purchasing it, recommending items based on what your avatar is currently wearing, and seamless “try on” are now possible. From the avatar editor, simply tap the shopping bag icon on the top right to be immediately taken to the Avatar Shop. 

We’re excited to launch this new update, and we hope you’ll find the refreshed design and these changes useful as you continue to explore the full range of customization options on Roblox. No matter the device, our goal is to make it as easy as possible to find the items you want to wear. Stay tuned for more updates.
