How to change the logo in Gmail

This video describes how to change the logo in Google Apps to a custom logo.

First, you must be an administrator on the domain, and your logo has to be formatted correctly. Google accepts .png, .jpg, and .gif files. They must be under 20kb in size and 143×59 pixels or less. Using different dimensions can cause your logo to be stretched. To upload your logo:

  1. Click Settings on right hand side of Gmail
  2. Choose Manage this domain
  3. Click the Domain settings tab
  4. Click the Appearance tab
  5. Select Custom logo
  6. Upload your file

      • The file must be in PNG or gif format, and I don’t believe you can add a link directly to those files.

  1. We`ve been using that for long time, but recently I found out that users that use iExplorer have stretched logo. On other browsers (FF, Chrome…) logo is OK.
    size is exact 143×59 .

    Why is this happening on IE?
    any solutions to that?

    regards,

    • Hey Marko,

      That’s an interesting problem, haven’t heard of that before. My first suggestion would be to stop using IE!

      But if your users prefer or need IE, then I think a good investigative step would be to use a screen measurement tool so see if the image measures 143×59 on the screen when it comes up in IE. That will give you some indication of at what stage the image is being distorted.

      Thanks,

  2. Hi, I looked under settings and manage this domain isn’t there. Could you please tell me why it isn’t there and how i can get it there.
    please respond,

    • Kevin,

      This most likely isn’t working for you because you are not designated as an admin for your domain. ‘Manage this Domain’ is limited to admins. Hope that helped!

    • Hi Jishan,

      Do you see a “gear” looking icon in the top right hand corner of your Gmail inbox? Clicking that should present you with three options for display density (cozy, comfortable, compact), and below those you should find a link to “Settings”.

      Please let me know if you don’t see it.

      Thanks,

    • I have 3 Google Apps accounts up on my screen right now and the logo is loading for all of them.

      I know that sometimes after you upload a new image, it takes a little while to be processed and show up in your Gmail, Docs, etc.

      But I’m not sure why it would disappear from an account where it was already showing.

    I have a weird problem. I have my logo on all apps (drive, calendar) but NOT on gmail.

    The wierd thing is if I chnage the theme the logo appears. But if i use the default theme it is not there. Any suggestions?

    • That will only appear if you’re a Google Apps admin. If you’re using Gmail, you will not have this option.

  6. I’m already using a custom logo for my Google Apps. My company recently updated our logo. I’ve tried updating the logo, but it isn’t taking for some reason. The new logo doesn’t appear after i click upload and i’ve tried a few different methods, but it stays the same. Any idea why?

    • Brandon,

      I’m actually having the same issue. It appears to be a bug, I’ll get back to you when I find a solution.
