Gaurav Vijay, Software Engineer at Google has today announced that the search giant has released hundreds of new Gmail themes for their email service allowing user to customise their experience even more.
Google has also enabled a new feature in Gmail that will enable you to upload your very own background using images for your photo library.
Google’s Vijay writes :
Themes can help you dress up your inbox, as well as distinguish between your home and work accounts, so they’ve been an important part of Gmail since they first appeared in 2008. Starting today there are hundreds more high-res options available (photographed by some fellow Googlers!). And of course, you can always upload your own.
Google has also added the ability to use emoji icons within your Gmail messages, just in case you can’t quite find the right word for the occasion.
The new Gmail update is rolling out over the next few days so if it hasn’t yet landed in your account be patient and keep checking back.
