Gmail Updates Its Web Interface By Adding New Themes And Emojis
Since 2014, Gmail was the only service of Google that had not received updates or new features. However from March this year, Gmail has been bringing in new updates, slowly and steadily, the latest being the ‘Undo Send’ feature. Google had been working on this feature for the past six years, and the work is now an official setting in the Gmail interface. As the name suggests, Undo Send pauses posting your email for a few seconds after you click Send, so you can take it back and edit it, like for example, spelled someone’s name wrong or entered wrong details.
Today, Gmail has rolled out yet another update for its web users. This new update focuses on fun, in a way we do while sending out emoji. Yes, Google’s updated and wider set of emoji characters, which we recently saw added to its Hangouts service, has now reached the company’s widely used Gmail. Now you can use all the same emoji you are already used to on Hangouts.
Additionally, Gmail has also added hundreds of HD wallpapers and themes to its already stunning bank of themes. But, that’s just not it. If you wish, you can edit the wallpaper according to your wish- there’s vignetting and text backgrounds, blurs, and such for making changes. If nothing else, then you can upload your own image instead.
The update has rolled out today. All the changes are available automatically in Gmail, with no download or opt-in necessary. Don’t worry if you have not received this update yet, as it will take some time to reach its users around the world.
