Custom Skins

It is also possible to upload a custom skin into Minecraft Pocket Edition if the Player chooses to do so. They can do so using the Minecraft: Skin Studio Encore App or any image editor. They can also download a skin file from the internet, save it in their images, and access it through the Settings.


  • Skins were originally planned for Update 0.10.0, but were postponed as they were too buggy.
  • Before Update 0.11.1, there was a bug where Skin Packs could not be purchased.
  • From Update 0.12.3 and Update 0.14.2, new skin packs were added in every update.
  • As of Update 0.15.0, the skins UI was changed.
  • As of Update 1.2, it is possible for Player's to change their Skin in-game (without having to exit to the main menu).
  • As of Update 1.2, skin packs can be imported.
