Hi all, I'm having users update their photos and they aren't showing up for other users, they are propgating throughout 365 but Teams still doesn't show them. I opened up my Teams client on a laptop I haven't used in a bit and it updated the photos. 

 

Does anyone know how long it takes Teams to update these photos? Obviously it's cached somewhere, and curious to what that pulls from, what the timer is and can you manually tell Teams to refresh this photo cache? 

 

Thanks!

I'm pretty sure the MS Teams profile photo isn't connected to O365 at this time.

Actually I stand corrected. I changed my photo in the Teams app yesterday and it is now visible in Office 365/Yammer etc.

yeah, my Teams on laptop is getting photos but not my desktop Teams. Not sure what causes it to update. Still trying to figure that out. Something up with the client itself not rendering them or updating cache. 

I am having the same issue here as well. Is there a known fix? 

if you update your photo on prem, it will sync to all 365 services including Teams, it just takes like a week to propagate.
My photo is working, but it does not show the photo of one of the other users on my team. They added the photo over a week ago, it does show up for me in Outlook and in Skype. It does show his correct photo in the web version of Teams but not in my Android or PC client.
Fixed it! Logged out of the Teams client and logged back in.
yeah i was just about to tell you to restart it so it updates cache.

Teams doesn't want to log out here … :( 

It stays on the loading screen forever …

@Deleted two years later and still major issues with profil photo syncing. Several users have new profile photos, which show in the Teams web app, but not in the desktop Teams app - after several days.  I have restarted my computer a few times, no change. We are having similar issues in SharePoint, so I can only assume that the entire profile photo handling in Office 365 is mostly broken.

Hi, we are also affected. This is really annoying!

Any solution, dear Microsoft Teams team?

I just updated a bunch of user profile photos in Office 365. I see some of the updated photos when logged into Teams (desktop), but other users are still displaying old photos.

 

When I log into Teams on the web, I see all of the updated photos. Microsoft support, have you figured out a way to get the new profile photos to actually sync with Teams desktop client? I tried logging out, and logging back in, but that only worked for some users.

Photos are cached locally for installed version of teams, and don't update properly. Users can manually clear their Teams cache for the photos to update.
