Zoom Profile Picture Not Uploading

There can be times when your Zoom app fails to upload a new picture to your account. There can be multiple reasons behind it.

Zoom servers are acting up. If Zoom servers are having a rough day, no matter how many times you try, you can't change Zoom profile picture on desktop or mobile.

Open DownDetector and search for Zoom. If you notice heavy spikes of outrage, you have no option but to wait for Zoom to fix the issue from their side.

While uploading a profile picture, make sure the image you select is less than 2MB in size.

Modify Zoom Profile Picture

Once you change the Zoom profile picture on one platform, you will see the live changes across all Zoom apps. Using the steps above, you can easily change your profile picture on Zoom. Make sure not to use a funky image. Try to use a professional one for a better impression.
