Can't change profile picture?
I've been trying to change my profile picture for the past few days with no success. At first I thought I had hit some daily limit, since I had been swapping out between a few different new icons when it got stuck on one. I waited 24 hours, but still couldn't change it. I've tried from both the app (Android) and the web browser (on a Macbook and Lonovo using Firefox, Chrome, and Safari). I've cleared my cache on my phone and computer, I've uninstalled and re-downloaded the app, and I've logged out and back in again on my browser, but nothing seems to work. I've tested with images of various dimensions, both .jpg and .png, all under the 1 MB size limit. I can't even switch back to the image I was using before.
When I try uploading a new picture on desktop in my account settings and hit save it says "Changes saved," but the image doesn't actually update. When I try uploading on the app, I get a message at the top of the screen that says "An error occurred. Try again later." which then annoyingly continues to pop up another couple of times as I try to move on and do lessons.
Is anyone else having this problem? Is there a solution that I just haven't thought to try yet?
same here. I just create this account one day ago and I want to change my profile picture for the second time but I can't. I also checked the older post about this problem and I think a lot of people also have the same problem. I think this is an old bug but never gets fixed.
I am having exactly the same problem and it has been going on for over a month. I have changed my picture several times before but suddenly cannot. I have done all the same things. I do hit Save, it is <1MB, I have tried png, manipulated dimensions, tried on my Google Pixel phone app and web site, tried web site on my Macbook and on a Lenovo computer, used Google chrome, safari, Firefox, Microsoft . I also have re-loaded the app, logged in and out, cleared phone cache, etc. I also have been getting the "error occurred, try again later message" on my phone app. I also cannot upload past pictures I have used before. I have submitted several bug reports and no meaningful response- just to check the user forums. I also am at a loss as to what else to try. I have been trying every day now for a month (thinking maybe it will just work) and no luck.
On desktop if you open the browser console, F12, you'll see GET and POST errors thrown after it reads 'Changes saved'. They don't have a pop-up message prepared for error cases. I've been facing the same issue.

Get creative with Google Illustrations
Today, we are bringing new customizable illustrations into Gmail that help users get creative with their profile pictures that also protect their privacy.
A picture is worth a thousand words, as the saying goes. And that’s definitely true online, where often we choose a single picture to represent our digital identities. On Google, a single image acts as a reflection of you across a variety of products, like when you send an email, write a comment on a document or share your location with your family on Maps.
Of course, people have different preferences of how they want to be represented digitally. Some prefer a photo of themselves, others might select a pet, and there are those who choose an object that might show a hobby or causes they support. But for some people, there isn’t an option that’s a good fit for them. Access to technology, social context or privacy concerns might prevent them from using an actual photo as a profile picture.
To give everyone more safe, creative and personalized options for profile pictures, we are introducing new Google Illustrations. Google Illustrations are a collection of customizable images that anyone can use to design the image of their choice to represent them across most Google products.
Inclusive and versatile
We all have different tastes and preferences. Whether you are a cat person, a foodie or an avid traveler, we’ve got you covered. Try searching for a place in your home country, a hobby you share with your friends, an animal or mythical creature that you like. Our collection of illustrations is inclusive of various cultures, interests and backgrounds.
Customized to be truly yours
You can adjust illustrations’ colors and focus to your own taste, whether you want to use the whole object or only a portion of it. Try focusing on individual elements of the images. The result might be a completely unique and different profile picture!
How to get an Illustration
You can see the new Google illustrations when you set your profile picture in Google Workspace and Contacts on Android. Access them easily via the Profile picture in the top right corner of the app. Browse the collection or search for a specific image to find options.
As soon as you create and save your profile picture, your friends, family and people you connect with will be able to see it across many Google products.
We’re working on bringing Google Illustrations to more Google products and platforms like iOS and Web. We are also expanding the collection, so stay tuned for more updates.

It's easy to change your Google profile picture. Here's how to do it in seconds on any desktop computer.

You can now change your Google Account profile picture right from the Contacts app
By Ryne Hager
Quick and easy
Changing the profile picture associated with your Google Account has never been difficult, but it's even easier to do now. A change to the latest version of the Google Contacts makes the process a two-tap affair, accessible quickly and easily from right inside the app.
Tap your profile picture in Google Contacts, tap it again with the camera icon, and you're taken right to the Google Account setting for it.
The new feature is simple. In the latest version of the Google Contacts app (v), tap your profile picture to access the account switcher. There, you should see a new camera icon on top of your profile picture for the current account. Tap that, and you'll be taken directly to the Google Account page to change your profile photo, or even just remove it entirely.
I suspect this change will also be rolling out other Google apps. Sometime since last summer, Google's documentation for changing the Gmail profile picture has changed to reference this same process, though the feature isn't actually present in that app yet.
The change was first spotted by our friends at XDA Developers and has been in testing as far back as Google Contacts v and September of last year. But we can verify it appears to be widely available in the latest version. The update should be rolling out now over on the Play Store, but you can pull it down early over at our sister site APK Mirror.
