I opened a Gmail account and uploaded my profile picture. Later I decide to change the picture, but I cannot find how to do it after the Gmail UI has been updated.

How can I change my picture?


There are two places Gmail will look for your profile picture.

  • Click on the gear at the top right of gmail site, and select settings. Scroll down to "My Picture" & Select "Change Picture."
  • (OR) Go to http://plus.google.com near the top right is a circle that should encapsulate your old profile picture. If you click on it, then click "Change photo.
  • If In the tablet/mobile version of gmail, it does not allow changes of profile-picture. You can accomplish this with an internet-browser-app in desktop mode following the steps above (OR) using the google+ app by touching the circle that encapsulates you old profile picture a few times.*

    • Also if on the tablet/mobile version of gmail, you could use the hangouts app click settings then scroll down and there you have it!
