  • The Illustrations feature a range of topics, from animals to space, technology, sports, and more.

Google is giving users the option to use personalized images as profile avatars with the launch of Google Illustrations.

The company announced the new collection on Monday as a way for users to set a profile photo that matches their own personal style while providing privacy for those that would rather not use an actual image of themselves.

On Google, a single image acts as a reflection of you across a variety of products, like when you send an email, write a comment on a document or share your location with your family on Maps.

Of course, people have different preferences of how they want to be represented digitally....But for some people, there isn't an option that's a good fit for them.

Google Illustrations will allow users to personalize their images to fit their interests, starting with a wide selection of topics to choose from, such as animals, sports teams, technology, space, and plenty others. The images can be customized with different colors, and users can focus on a specific part of the image for additional personalization.

Google Illustrations Topics

The new illustrations editor will be available throughout the best Android phones on Google Contacts and Workspaces apps like Gmail. To change the profile avatar, tap the profile thumbnail at the top right, tap the thumbnail in the dialogue, and select "Add profile picture," which will pull up a new image selector with a section dedicated to the Illustrations collection.

How to watch season 18 of Grey’s Anatomy online from anywhere

After last season was cut short, Grey's Anatomy is returning to ABC with brand new episodes and we have all the details on how you can watch the longest running medical drama yet on TV or online. Just as ABC did with season 17 last year, the season 18 premiere of the show will actually be a two-hour crossover event with Grey's Anatomy spin-off series Station 19. While Grey's Anatomy tells the story of Meredith Grey, played by Ellen Pompeo, and the other doctors, nurses and residents at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, Station 19 follows a group of firefighters from the Seattle Fire Department.

PS5 stock is selling out fast, so be sure to have your credit card ready. Looking to buy a PS5 ? Well, so are millions of other people, and the stock levels we've seen so far are tight, even nearly a year after its launch. Every time a retailer puts stock up for sale, it sells out super quickly. The longest we've seen them stay in stock is maybe 15 to 20 minutes (usually just a few minutes, though), and that's at random times, so finding one for yourself can be a truly difficult task. Sony warned that it will be hard to find stock throughout the year and well into 2022, but retailers are promising more are coming, and Sony has secured additional semiconductor chips to make them. In our PS5 review, we called it a technical marvel with a groundbreaking controller. After spending a few months with it now, it's nearly impossible to go back to the PS4. Everything about the PS5 is better , from the games to the DualSense haptic feedback . You'll definitely want to
