Introduction Your Xbox Gamertag is the name that other players will know you by, and depending on the game or time in your life, it may be time for an update. Luckily, Microsoft has made it easy for Xbox users to change their gamertags, even on their phones. In this article, we will guide you through the process of changing your Xbox gamertag using your phone.

Step 1: Open the Xbox App To begin, open the Xbox app on your phone. If you haven't already, download the app from your device's app store. Once the app is installed, sign in to your Xbox account.

Step 2: Tap on Your Profile Once you're signed in, tap on your profile picture or avatar in the upper left corner of the screen. This will take you to your profile page.

Step 3: Select Customize On your profile page, you'll see a button that says "Customize." Tap on it to access the customization options for your profile.

Step 4: Choose Change Gamertag In the customization menu, you'll find an option to "Change Gamertag." Tap on it to proceed.

Step 5: Check Availability Before changing your gamertag, you'll need to check if the new name you want is available. Type in your desired gamertag and tap the "Check Availability" button. If the name is taken, you'll need to come up with a different one.

Step 6: Confirm the Change If your desired gamertag is available, you'll be prompted to confirm the change. Review the new gamertag and tap the "Confirm" button to proceed.

Step 7: Pay for the Change Changing your gamertag usually comes with a fee. You'll be prompted to pay for the change using a payment method linked to your Xbox account. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the payment.

Step 8: Enjoy Your New Gamertag Once the payment is processed, your gamertag will be changed. You can now enjoy your new Xbox identity and show it off to your friends and fellow gamers.
