How to Fix When Zoom is Not Showing Profile Picture

That is the end of the methods to show your profile picture in zoom meetings. If you are still facing issues and your profile picture is not showing up despite diligently following all the steps correctly, here is a list of solutions that you can deploy.

Problem 1: Zoom is not showing the updated profile picture even after you have just changed it.

Solution: Zoom might not instantly change your display picture, especially if you have done it just seconds before. However, even after waiting for some time, your profile image is still the same or is still your name’s initials, so you must try logging out and logging back into your zoom account. This will instantly start showing your new profile photo. 

Problem 2: Your Zoom profile photo is changed to your Gmail image as you logged in using Gmail. 

Solution: Often, when you directly login via Gmail, zoom automatically updates your photo as the one in your Gmail account. You might want to change the image for your zoom meeting, and thus, here is a quick method to do that. A quick way is to change your Gmail profile image. Once you check in with a Google account on Zoom, whether through the web, the PC client, or the mobile app, your Gmail profile image replaces your name initials throughout a conference. If your Google account does not yet have a profile photo, follow the steps below to add one: 

Step 1: Go to the Google My Account page in your browser. Then through your Gmail account, you can log in.

Step 2: From the left-hand sidebar, select Personal Info.

Step 3: After that, select Photo. Choose a picture from your computer.

Step 4: Crop the image as needed.

Step 5: Then select Set As Profile Photo from the drop-down menu.

Problem 3: Profile Picture is not Visible after all the other fixes. 

Solution: The aforementioned approaches were about adding a profile photo to Zoom to appear when the camera was turned off. Try the troubleshooting methods beneath if you’re still having difficulties seeing your profile photo meeting.

Step 1: When attending a conference, ensure you use the Zoom app.

Step 2: If you would you like to join a meeting over the internet, log in to your account rather than attending as a guest, log in to your account.

Step 3: When checking in to the Zoom website, select the “Stay Signed in” choice to prevent logging in each time.

Problem 4: Profile Picture option disabled by Host

Solution: Check to see whether the meeting host has switched off profile photos as a last resort. Yes, Zoom now allows the host to turn off the participant’s images, which means that the profile pictures will not appear in the meeting. To verify it, go to:

Step 1: Request that the host goes to the Zoom website.

Step 2: Sign in and go to the top-right corner of the page to My Account.

Step 3: Now, on the sidebar, select Settings.

Step 4: Tap In Meeting on the following screen (Basic),
