|Up-to-date for the 2023-2024 school year.
We are updating every employee's Google Account photo to be the same as their new RCS ID photo. The Google Account photo shows up in the upper-right of your GMail window, and presents to recipients of your emails as well as in other locations. It might take up to a day for the change to be seen all over (due to browser caching and stuffs).
Things you want to ask right now
- Gmail profile picture
- Your name and profile picture can be viewed by other people who use Google services, including when you communicate or share content.
- How often are you doing this
- Just once per year. ID photos are taken in May/June and we update before school starts in August.
- Can I change the picture to something else
