Saw this article being shared on twitter:

Google My Business recently rolled out a feature to actually allow you to pro-actively select your profile photo, which is a dramatic improvement over the previous crapshoot. But there are still issues and problems that need to be dealt with. Just because you identified an image as your preferred choice doesn’t mean that the Google algo will show that image. It will give the image you chose preference … BUT … if it is a logo or a headshot and they have an image that would improve a user's Map experience (like an exterior view) they will substitute that image for the one that you chose.

That's good and all - but did they change the PROFILE PHOTO as a COVER PHOTO? And is this article still true? It was published in 2015.
Hey @raellovepie yes the options are now labelled as "Cover" photo and 'Logo". There used to be a "Profile" photo option but that was deprecated. I'll make a note to get that article updated. Thanks!
