Once the logo is successfully uploaded, it will be shown in supported google applications like shown below.

Please make sure your custom logo follows Google’s recommended guidelines, otherwise you will see an error or your company logo will look blurry.

  • Your logo image file type should be png
  • It should not be more than 30 kb in size
  • Its dimensions should be 320 x 132
  • You must use Google Chrome browser to upload custom logo

How long does it take for my custom logo to appear everywhere?

Though as per Google’s formal documentation, it may take up to 4 days for your custom uploaded logo to appear in Google Workspace applications, however based on our experience it starts to show up within a day most of times.

If you followed Google’s size and format recommendations listed above, and did not get any error, that indicates your company logo has been uploaded successfully, and it would appear in the apps like Gmail soon, just have some patience and check back in a few hours.

Google Admin Console

Google Photos

Google Meet

and others

Can I upload different logos for different services or domains?

Google allows one logo for all the applications which support custom logo (mentioned above), so you can not have a different logo based on the service, domain, organization unit or group.

What if I want to remove my custom logo later?

If you are cancelling Google Workspace subscription or want to remove your company logo for any other reason, you can follow the same path to remove your logo as you did to upload it (e.g navigate to personalization in admin console, select google default logo and save changes).
