So you are among the few who got invited to checkout Google+ and like the simplistic UI and simple colors or you are among the most of us who just saw some videos of what its like, doesn’t matter, all of you can now try Gmail’s preview of the new look its going to sport by default, once Google+ opens up for the public. Read past the break to know how-to.
First login to your Gmail account then click on the “Settings” icon at the top right of the toolbar and then click on “Mail settings”. From here goto “Themes”, at the bottom of the page you will see two new themes “Preview” and “Preview (Dense)”. Click on wither of these to get the new look for Gmail. Its a pretty and clean look, although Google warns that some labs features might not look correct with the new theme as its stil under development but its in the works.
You will also notice that the top bar over your mails now moves when you scroll, thus giving you all the functionality even if you have scrolled to the bottom of the page. Hit us in the comments as to how you like the new look ?
