I think email is boring.
I also think Google realises this, which is why it has been finding new ways to make it more fun…like inbox. That sort of thinking is finally making its way to the Gmail for web app itself. First up, Google is offering hundreds of new photos which you can use to personalize your email experience and also, you the option to upload your own photos as themes as well. Once you’ve found the right photo, you can now use editing tools like blur, vignette, and text background to make your image and messages look great together.
If that’s not enough, Google is also bringing emoji support to Gmail on the web, for those times when words just don’t cut it.
The updates have already started rolling out, (I have got them) but Google says it might take a few days for everyone to get them.
