1 Discord Profile Picture / Avatar - Basics

No matter where you are on the Internet - social media, streaming platforms or chat services: An appealing profile picture is a basic requirement for a successful appearance. Of course, this also applies to Discord. Especially when you are in a voice chat, a profile picture is very important, because depending on the configuration, your profile picture will be displayed in the Discord overlay and lit up accordingly as soon as you speak into the microphone. This way, the other participants of the voice chat, while they are in the game, can immediately see who is speaking based on the avatar. For this reason, you should choose a profile picture that suits you and that you can identify with. 

2 How to change profile picture on Discord!

You can change your profile picture or avatar in Discord with just a few mouse clicks. All you need is a Discord account and the corresponding app on your PC or smartphone. Alternatively, you can even change the profile picture when you open Discord in the browser window.
