How to customize a Google Account using Google Illustrations?
Google wants to reach out especially to those who prefer to leave their profile pictures empty instead of displaying an image that represents them within the company’s services.
Until the end of the year, the new tool will only be available in the Gmail application for Android devices. Then the company will expand this new feature for its other applications too.
To be able to use this feature, after entering Gmail, open the profile selector from the top right corner and click on the avatar. Then, you will see a camera icon, click on that. It will allow you to choose a different image as your avatar, there you will see new options provided by Google Illustrations.
As we said earlier, Google plans to bring this new tool to more platforms, they intend to offer new avatars to iOS users as well.
