New Delhi: Are you bored of all those old themes that Google offers to spice up your Gmail account? If yes, then here is good news for you. Google has announced that its users will now be able to bring an even more personal touch by setting their own background images.
So over the next couple of days, Google will roll out a new Custom themes section with two options - Light and Dark, where users can do just that.
Users will now be able to upload their own images directly, select photos from Google+ photos or simply paste any image URL. "If you don't have a particular image in mind, you can browse our searchable Featured Photos section to find one that speaks to you. With so many great options, it may be hard to choose, so to get a sense of the images available, try searching for 'hdr scenery’ or 'bokeh wallpaper' in the Featured tab," said Greg Bullock, Software Engineer, Google, in an official Gmail blog.
Users will be able to upload their images directly, select photos from Google+ photos or paste any image URL.
Last year in November, Google unveiled Gmail's new look back, with a spate of new, beautiful HD themes. But now, Google goes a step ahead, thereby making customisation a little more advanced.
"Whether you want to bask on a tropical island or simply reminisce about last year's holiday with the family, your Gmail can now be customized to your mood. Find your perfect image and make your Gmail your own with custom themes," he added.
