Facebook Messenger is an instant messaging app for Android and iOS devices. By linking your Facebook account, you can chat with all your Facebook friends. Apart from messaging, you can share photos, videos, recorded audios, and more. You can also use Facebook Messenger as a default messaging app to send and receive messages with the phone book contacts. By default, the messenger will import the profile picture from your Facebook account. However, some of the Facebook users are searching for ways to change the profile picture on Messenger.
Is it possible to change? The answer is yes. However, you can’t change the profile picture for messenger alone. By changing your Facebook profile picture, the messenger profile will be updated automatically. At the same time, you can’t use the Messenger app without a Facebook account. So it is impossible to change the profile picture on messenger without Facebook.

#1: Open the Facebook app on your device and tap on your profile picture.
#2: Select the Camera icon located at the bottom of the profile picture.
