Get custom skins for Minecraft: Pocket Edition

Custom skins for your Minecraft characters are now available for Minecraft: Pocket Edition. You can download new ones or add skins you customised yourself.

Create or select your skin

Websites such as minecraftskinstudio.com offer a selection of skins for you to choose from, as well as an editor to give your skin a personal touch. You can either select a ready-made skin or create your own.

Download the skin to your Windows Phone

Once you've created or selected your new skin, you'll need to get it onto your Windows Phone:

  1. Using your mobile device, look for the option to Download or Save on the website where you created or selected your new skin.
  2. If you're prompted to open or save the file, select Save.
  3. By default, the file will be saved to your Downloads folder. Make sure that the file name has a .png extension.

Add a skin to Minecraft: Pocket Edition

To add your skin to Minecraft: Pocket Edition and use it:

  1. Start Minecraft: Pocket Edition.
  2. Go to Options, which is the bottom-right icon on the main menu.
  3. On the left side, select the Skins icon and then select Browse skin.
  4. Navigate to the Downloads folder (or wherever you saved the .png file on your phone).
  5. Select the new skin to continue.

The next time you load your game or start a new one, your character will be wearing the new skin.
