I've created a group chat in Teams with multiple people.  I'd like to be able to change the default image for the group chat so I can more quickly differentiate it from other group chats I've created.  Is there a way to change the default image that is displayed next to the group chat in the same manner that you can change an image for a team?

hi, do you find the solution?

You can right click the name of the Team and go to View Team.  You should then see a little pencil when you hover over the image and can edit it there.

Tried, but it did not work. I can easily change the Team image, but the question is: How do I change the chat group image. I have not yet found a solution.

My apologies...I didn't realize you were referring to the chat section and not the Teams section.  I don't see a way to modify that image.

Are there any Updates regarding this Topic?

 

We also would like to change the default picture for Chats.

 

Is this a feature we can expect in the future?

@Maureen Magnotta Sanders i don't see no 'Small pencil'

@FlushFluff In a multi-party chat (not a team), after the list of names, there is a small pencil where you can rename the chat, but not change the picture, unfortunately.  You can only change the picture on a Team, not a multiple-person chat thread at this time, as was mentioned earlier.

Can you at least explain where the displayed image comes from?

If the group chat comes from a meeting invite, it has a picture of a calendar.  If it's a group of people that started from just adding people, it's a combination of 3 of those users' profile pictures, no matter how many people are in the chat.
