According to +Denise Ho, Google+ Photos Product Manager, Photos have been updated to allow you to take your profile picture with your webcam and alert your circles when you change your default. Here the feature is in action complete with a silly hat:

Note "Take Snapshot"


To get started, go to your profile page, click Edit profile and select change photo. On the left, select Web camera (Flash required). Pose with a big smile and snap away until you see the perfect shot.

Once you’re done, you also have the option to send your circles a personal message in the share box to spread the excitement around your new profile photo.

Thanks Denise!
