Unable to change Instance Type in GitHub Codespaces

Issue Type: Feature Request

While using GitHub Codespaces and creating a new codespace I have no option where I could change the Instance Type. As of now, I believe an instance type is pre-specified for you maybe while reviewing a PR a “Basic” instance is created, and so on. It would be helpful to have this option customizable by the user while creating a codespace.

Though I have not yet tried it out I believe that this could maybe be customized with the Preferences Sync, but it would be great to have this right while creating one.

Thanks for the suggestion! It’s on the roadmap for the future once we’re closer to GA and have billing place.
