How to change a managed user or admin avatar

Managed users are participants who log in with a username and password. These login credentials are created by the group chat owner, by the Register option or via the API when you sync your own userbase to the chat room.

Administrators, once created by the group chat owner, are given moderating authority. They can delete messages and disconnect or ban unruly users.

As a group chat owner, log in to your admin panel and select -> settings -> “User”.

From there you can view the field to add your own image. This occurs in one of two ways.
