Unified user photos and new admin controls

Quick launch summary 

We’re changing the manner in which user profile photos are displayed across Google products and services, and updating how admins can manage those photos. 

Last year, we removed a photo setting in Gmail that allowed users to set a different profile photo in Gmail than their Google Account. Starting today, users who still have two different profile photos will be migrated to a single profile photo. No action is needed by users, the current Google Account photo will become their only profile photo. This will ensure users are seen and recognized consistently across different products and interfaces. 
Previously set Google Account profile photos are kept in a user’s Album Archive, available at New profile photos set by users or admins will also be stored here. 

Getting started 

A user’s Google Account photo will be used for their profile photo
