How to change name and image in Google Meet on mobile and PC

Typically, video conferencing apps like Zoom, Google Meet, Skype, Microsoft Teams, etc. display your name if you choose to turn off video. Mostly, this is the name that you used to create the account of the respective video call service. So keeping a recognizable or real name is a must, especially when attending an online course or a formal meeting. Many people don’t know how to change or use their real name while making a Google Meet call on Android, iOS, iPadOS, and PC. We’ll share how you can change your name and display an image in Google in this article.

Sometimes there is a misspelling in the name, and that’s a possible reason why you want to change it. You must have checked the settings of Google Meet and left a little confused. You must therefore ask yourself whether we can even change the name (or the profile picture) on Google Meet or not.

Let’s find the answer to all these questions.

Can we change our name on Google Meet

Yes you can. However, the process is slightly twisted. Your Google Meet account is linked to your Google account.

This will change your name and picture in all other Google services like Google Drive, Google Photos, Gmail, etc.

If that’s okay with you, here are the steps to change name and picture on Google Meet on PC, Android, iPhone, and iPad.
