Gmail Themes Updated and Streamlined

One of the more popular features of Gmail is the ability to customize the look with themes. The themes selection page has been around for a long time and it has looked dated and old. Now the Gmail team has introduced a complete redesign, one that helps feature those themes created by Gmail users themselves.

In addition, the new themes page will offer the following new and existing features:

  • Streamlined dialog box
  • Many new high-res backgrounds
  • Use your own photos as backgrounds
  • Use old themes from before this update
  • Customize images with blur or other vignette effects
  • Selection of light or dark text in an easier to select dialog
