I have a contact with a Google+ account. Whenever I search her for Hangouts or call, I get the picture from her Google+ account.
It does not matter if I go to google.com/contacts and I set up a new image. I will still keep seeing their Google+ image.
Is there any way to override it?
I had a similar issue on my phone, and this has worked now with 2 contacts with caveats described below:
Please note: I'm verifying this with contacts that definitely have Google+ profiles and are synced to my Google account.
Google+ Profile, or any field with any sort of web address link
Now, on a computer through a web browswer
Upon returning to Hangouts (and Messenger, etc.) the contact pictures should be changed on your phone. Strangely, this photo edit will only take place on the phone, and not on the Google Contacts website. Conversely, changes made on the website seem not to affect photos you've changed on your device.
