Set profile picture for Gmail and all Google apps 3 semanas ago

What’s changing

We’re combining the Gmail photo with the Google account profile photo. Now, when you go to change this setting in Gmail, you’ll be directed to the “About me” section of your Google profile settings to set your profile picture.

Who’s impacted

Admins and end users

Why you’d use it

Currently, profile pictures set in Gmail are only displayed in Gmail. This means your profile picture in Gmail may be different than your Google account profile photo, which can make it difficult to know which picture will be displayed where. This change simplifies things by allowing you to set a single profile picture in one place and then displaying that single photo across all Google apps.

How to get started

  • If your Gmail and profile photos are currently different, and you have permission to edit your photo, you’ll  see a pop-up when you visit your About me settings which will prompt you to select one of the images or choose an entirely new photo. 

Additional details

This setting gives Admins who have disabled photo editability in their domain greater control, as users can no longer change their Gmail picture independently of their Google profile picture. 

Note that users who do not visit their «About me» settings will not be prompted to select a single profile picture and will continue to have different profile pictures.
