Gmail getting a new look

When Google launched its 'Google +' social network service last week, there were some changes to the look of the search engine at the same time - a new black bar at the top of the screen listing the company's different services, for example. Now it seems Google is bringing the new look to the rest of its services - including Gmail.

They launched a preview this week of a new look that's coming to the service in the next few weeks and months. You can use it now by going into your Gmail settings, clicking on 'themes,' and choosing one of the 'preview' options.

What's it like? Well, just as white as always, but with red replacing blue as the main secondary colour. There's a bit more space, too.

We like it, we think, though there's a bit of tweaking to do required before it's rolled out to everyone. But if you fancy giving it a shot, let us know what you think of it in the comments below.
