Google has added a new feature to its Web-based email service that allows users to personalize their Gmail inboxes by uploading their own image, or making their own theme.
Earlier, Gmail users could only choose from Web search giant’s pre-made themes and colors.
One can create his/her own theme by clicking on the "Options" logo that appears on the upper right hand corner of the Gmail inbox, then by going to "Mail Settings" and selecting the "Themes" tab, which brings "Create your own theme" option.
A small box on the top left corner of the window brings a drop-down menu about colors and an option to upload image.
Announcing the new feature, the company said in a statement, “We've heard from many of you who thought it would be even better if you could give Gmail an even more personalized look and create themes completely on your own."
Separately, Gmail earlier this week officially rolled out two Gmail Lab features, viz. "Don't Forget Bob" and "Got the Wrong Bob," which help the users avoid addressing errors.
