Profile Picture is not syncing for team meetings.

Occasional Visitor

Dear reader,


I go to high school. My laptop is school property. When I enter Microsoft Teams, I changed my profile picture to something new instead of my previous one. Everything synced in two days. Except teams meetings. Whenever I meet, its still displays the old picture. When I DM someone, it shows the new one. It already synced for all of my other Office 365 apps, just not when I meet in Microsoft Teams.

The following seemed to work for me in forcing the profile picture in Teams meetings to update


  • Log into Teams from the web
  • Update your profile picture from the web UI
  • In Teams desktop ... sign out of teams
  • Close Teams desktop
  • Re-open and sign-in to Teams Desktop

@itkdoug :  This solution worked for me too. Thanks.

The same thing has happened to me! Can someone please help!
And did you try the above solution with some likes?
Yes, I'm not sure if it worked, on my teams meeting it still showed my old one. Now it's starting to show my new one.
