Finally, Google has decided to enable themed customization to their Gmail application. Currently, there is a small amount of customization available in the Labs feature but if you wanted a custom look you were stuck with using a third-party design like the Gmail Redesigned Skin in Better Gmail. Now you have the option of 30 new themes to keep your inbox spicy.
Unfortunately, thanks to Google’s slow roll out policy, I still don’t see the themes tab in my settings. If you are experiencing the same thing just give it a couple of days before you see the option. Having seen some screen shots, I think these new themes are great or at least a lot nicer than the ones available in iGoogle.
Check them out at the official Gmail blog. Which one do you like best?
