Announcing Ambassador Badging

Big news—Ambassador badges are coming to Xbox Live

We may have hinted a bit in the headline, but we have some unparalleled news to share today. As noted in the Xbox Ambassadors In-Progress Feedback Tracker, we have heard community feedback around more recognition for Xbox Ambassadors on Xbox Live. In fact, it is one of the top requested features from you, the Ambassadors.

Today, we’re excited to announce that starting May 7, 2019, you will be able to show off your Xbox Ambassador status on your Xbox Live profile with a unique badge that will appear next to your Xbox Live tenure. When someone visits your Xbox Live profile, they will know that you are part of a community that is making Xbox fun for everyone!

Are you ready to add this shiny new badge to your Xbox Live profile? Read on to find out how!

Get your Xbox Ambassadors badge

In order to display the Ambassador badge on your Xbox Live profile, you’ll need to meet two simple requirements:

  1. Be an Xbox Ambassador
  2. Reach Bronze tier to unlock your Xbox Live badge!

If you’ve already made it to Bronze tier this season, the badge will be enabled by default. That means the badge will appear on your Xbox Live profile when the feature rolls out on 5/7!


How to opt-out

What if you prefer not to display your Xbox Ambassador status on your Xbox Live profile? We understand that you might prefer to stay under the radar while gaming. If you reached Bronze tier and do not want the Ambassador badge on your Xbox Live profile, simply follow the steps below to opt-out:

  • Login to https://ambassadors.microsoft.com/xbox
  • Navigate to “Profile”
  • Click “Badges & Pins”
  • Locate the “Xbox Live Badge” section
  • Click the “Visible on Xbox Live” button to toggle it to “OFF”

Please Note: The opt-out slider will be available starting on 4/30, and you can opt-out at any time after that.

We’re looking forward to seeing your Ambassador badges on Xbox Live starting 5/7!
