Not everyone likes to set their own photo as a profile picture. Yes, there are some shy guys among us. If you are one of them, Google cares about you. Google just created some illustrations to represent your identity. Are you familiar with illustrations? Of course, you are.
You may have seen them in other apps. These satisfying pictures work as your avatar. Previously Google used the first letter of your name as an avatar if you didn’t insert a picture. You must get bored seeing this. From now on you can change it without adding a picture from other sources.
Check out your Gmail account now. The newly added illustrations are so comfortable. You will find different cultures, animals, mythic creatures, and many other colorful images there. Select the one that suits your personality. We know one’s personality can not be declared by illustrations.
But you cannot ignore the fun fact. You can also change the background color and crop as you wish. All these features were recently added by Google. We know everyone is not interested in these little things. But if you are still displaying a single or double word for representing your Google ID, You should change it now.
