I am using the google inbox app for iPhone. Is it possible to set it up, so that it does not show pictures of people who is writing to me? I need to recieve work relevant emails from persons whos profile pictures I find offensive, and do not want to look at.

I have been through all the settings I could find and I don't know of a search term or documented feature to allow this

  • Are you open to a solution where no images are shown?

    @bmike: Yes - I would be very happy, if no profile pictures were shown at all. Jun 10, 2015 at 19:43

Try changing their photos in your saved contact so that your photo of them shows up instead.

  • I do not know why this was downvoted. It is not the solution(I have not tested if it works yet), I was hoping for, but it could be the only option. Jun 10, 2015 at 19:46
  • Unfortunately, gmail app and google inbox does not use the informations from the contacts app. The pictures are only taken from the google accounts. Sep 14, 2015 at 17:10

    Aw, that's a bummer. Hopefully, you find a response soon. I'm having issues getting photos on my non-photo email contacts; total opposite! Haha. Sep 16, 2015 at 22:37
