Summary of this Tutorial:

To get that on your site, you want to get a log image that is 512 px by 512 px and it must be square.

The image can be in png, jpg or gif format.

After logging into your WordPress site, just go to Appearance, Customize and click on the site identity tab.

Depending on your theme you can fill out the site title and tagline and here you want to select file and upload the logo you just created.

If the image is larger you’ll be able to crop it here, otherwise you can just save your changes.

    Did this change in the last month? I don't see "Site Icon" or any upload options when I go to Site Identity. Could this also be because I don't have a premium website?
