Feature changes for customizing your YouTube channel

Translated channel sections and vertical section layout will be discontinued July 15, 2020. We’re also redesigning featured channels to increase visibility on mobile. These features were rarely used and we’re removing them to simplify your experience, as well as focus on bringing channel customization to YouTube Studio later this year. Learn more.

Manage your YouTube channel icon

Your YouTube channel icon is your profile picture. It's the icon that displays to other viewers for your videos and channel on YouTube watch pages.

The default icon for your channel is the image associated with your Google Account. You can see this image in the top right corner of the page when you're signed in to YouTube and other Google services. If you want to change this image, you can modify it in your Google Account settings.
