Hi,
I am wondering how to set a profile photo? I am able to create an avatar without any problems but I'm not able to create a profile photo.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    The profile picture you see in your Oculus Go is the profile picture from your Oculus account that you logged in with. You can change it on the Oculus website here. Click on you profile name at the top of this page, and then hover over your profile image and click Change Picture.

    Thanks for the reply. I went to the Oculus.com website and clicked on the icon in the top right corner and then i clicked on My Profile. I couldn't find a profile image on that webpage.

    I then did the same thing on this forums website and changed the profile picture but it hasn't changed the profile picture on my Oculus Go. Maybe I need to wait a while before it propagates through the network.

    Just for clarification...
    Which solution proposed worked?  ;-)

    Ah!  I think I see it.  It was the Rift app install option.
    It threw me off because the messages showed up out of order (I am assuming because they were "accepted answers" and popped to the top.). 

    Thanx!

    Right now, the only way to change the avatar image is through the Oculus Windows app, or the Gear VR app. Currently the website and Oculus Go companion app do not have this feature. However, we are looking into it for the future. Thanks.

    Any update on being able to change profile photo from the Oculus app or website?  Spent way too long looking for this feature to realize it can only be done from Gear VR app or 4GB Oculus Windows application...  the Gear VR app is no longer listed in app store or Samsung apps and I'm not about to download 4GB to add a photo to my account.

    We are still looking into this, but right now the Oculus desktop app is the only way. The Gear VR Oculus app was never in the Play Store, it is only available when docking your Samsung phone into a Gear VR.

    I have the Go and can‘t change the photo from what it originally synced from Facebook! I don’t have a f#§%&g windows machine or android smartphone! Please update the iOS app to include this really basic functionality. I feel like a beta tester...

    Ha! This is funny because I set my profile pic to something about a year ago when it was still possible (I never had the desktop app), but I see rules have now changed and I can't set it any more from either my Oculus dashboard or the mobile app.

    It’s now mid September and we STILL cannot do this! What’s up with that? Seriously? As a retired Microsoft programmer can you please explain to me why this cannot be done? This for all intents and purposes should be straightforward and not time-expensive. It’s easy to spot GO users because they all have Blank Pics! Until you can figure all that out, can you at least REMOVE the Annoying Blank Pic Icon stuck to my Avatars chest? Please!!

    I don’t want to use my personal FB PHOTO for my GAMER profile photo   Geesh  

    Hello,

    Thank you for reaching out to us here at Oculus Support.

    At this time, there does not appear to be an option to edit your profile photo on the Oculus Go, the Oculus app on your phone, or through the website.

    It's possible that this feature will be added in the future, so I would recommend you keep trying the app, and keep an eye on our blog. Sometimes when features are implemented, we post about it on the blog, which you can view by clicking here.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    Respectfully,

    Jayce

     You can do it by downloading the Oculus Rift setup app, install the software (skip the hardware setup portion) then change it from there.

    I agree this is a joke. It doesn’t sound like a challenging UI dev task to fix this especially because it was possible in the past. Yet it’s been more than a year and no fix.

    You can't even install the Rift app if you don't have the proper PC hardware requirements. I have a Windows PC, and it won't even let me install the app.
