Today they have launched the feature of Gmail themes. Have you checked that Gmail themes. If not check them once by looking into settings of your Gmail. Give me your feedback on that. Though they are not good that much, but it will be some what better when compared to old style. They recently added video chat in Gmail and now the themes. Hope to see more features and products from Google.

Gmail already takes a lot of band width. I use it for internet marketing and frequently have 20-50 tabs open at once. I don't need any graphics to slow it down. I block almost all graphics to save bandwidth and time loading.

Yes, you must not use those themes as you are heavy user. But when it comes to me, I open only one tab and I will check my few messages. For me, it was okay to use. Thank you.

I would never get anything done if I only opened one tab. I get several thousand emails a day on Gmail, about 50 on Yahoo and another 50 on my main account. Needless to say I avoid all graphics when ever possible.

Hm...looks interesting even if they are not good as you say. I have not checked my gmail account today yet, but I will try the themes out next time I am in there. At least I hope it will make the everyday process of checking mail at least a bit more interesting.

Yes, it was better to see a some good image instead of plain text. But they havne't enable the same in all accounts. Hope they will enable themes in all accounts soon. Thank you.

I could not find any backgrounds in my settings...looks like it will take time before it appears in my account. But anyways I am looking forward to getting to know this new invention of Gmail.

After discussing with other members and searching on internet about the same feature, I came to know that they haven't enable this feature for all members. So those who haven't find that feature has to wait for some more time. Post your view on that themes when you check your mail. Have you find them in your mail.

Yes, I have seen them though I could not check them out in details. I did not find them very useful though. I checked under sports to see the latest ODI results and a host of sites offering instant cricket update came up! Wasn’t very helpful. I again went back to my trusted rediffmail for the cricket live scores.

Yes, they are not useful to us in any way. But it was some what better to see those themes instead of the old bold style of gmail. But after some time, they will get bored and we may shift our theme to the classic one. (OLD IS GOLD)

I started this same discussion today and i am amazed on you that how beautifully you are starting a discussion. really nice. gmail video feature can be tested only if both the two persons installed those video chat options. but it dont tooks much time for installation & very easy too. and for the themes, i really liked the last row.. they had given themes in all tastes for the peoples. so peoples can choose their favourite in the available 31 themes.. there are simple, fantasy & Colourful themes are availble. Really a great job from gmail admin. We should definitely thank them. (and finally you won this discussion for getting more responses comparing to me) Congrats!

Yes, they have included only 31 themes and all users must be satisfy with them. Hey, it is not at all a competition to won. I have started this discussion after you only. So you are first one who started the discussion and all these credits belongs to you only.

To be honest I kinda like the new themes. I set up the mountains one on my work account . And while I'm hesitant to change, especially if something is working well (I have this 'don't fix what ain't broken' mentality), I have to say that my gmail looks really nice now. I will have to see how those new themes work with slower connection (like the dialup I have at home). Because something tells me they won't be working all that well.. The previous 'new' layout worked terribly with my slower connection so... The jury is still up, you might say

For very slow connections like modem users, these themes and standard mail loads very slowly. But they are available for all users. They have to choose whether they want to wait for loading or to load basic HTML view. I do love those themes, but I love the one that I had created. Thank you for your response.

Gmail All Themes - All themes that are available currently
I have checked my another account in Gmail. But these themes are not available in that account. I had them in only one account. Hope we will get them soon in all accounts. It was in themes page under settings. Thank you for your response.

Sounds great ! I haven't checked my gmail though, maybe a little later, I hope mylot would add some spice also like themes, suits personal likes. However, if we add such feature would it take a little bit slower ? Thanks for the info!

All themes - The new gmail themes
Yes, it would be great if myLot added some new features like themes. I was bored by looking in my home page. Even we can edit our profile, it was not enough as I visit my profile page very rarely. Thank you for your response. Have a great day.

Finnally got these themes in my account as well. Well it is not a big deal - whether it is with themes or not, but may work, just if you simply want to make your account look different sometimes. I'll browse the themes some day when I have time I will maybe pick up something for myself.

Oh, I have seen it already. And all I can say is I have to go back to the original theme because my eyes is having a problem. I can only take too much color.

Yeah I had a quick look at them my self before and I changed my theme to the green one but didn't really look into it any further then that but will have to go and have a closer look when I have a little more time to do so

I have tried them.I can say that they are not that good and all the themes are making the letters a little dull or invisible.As a change from the regular dram it is OK.

I have two gmail accounts and I have different themes for both. I am using the tree theme and the phantasea for the other one. They are really upto date. They set the benchmark for the beta chat which yahoo followed afterwards. But yahoo has been advance in terms of chatting facilities. The video chat has been improved by yahoo and even could compete with skype.
