We are excited to announce that the avatar editing functionality
AvatarEditorService has exited beta and is now available to developers! These methods allow you to create an Avatar Editor in your experience that saves the player’s avatar back to the platform.

The catalog-related functionality will be released at a later time.
This is the avatar editor and catalog adapted to work within the experience using the

AvatarEditorService APIs work.
