Share Gmail Themes

If you use a custom Gmail theme, you can share it with other people. Unlike regular Gmail themes, custom themes use the picture you've selected, so you can generate a permalink that allows other Gmail users to quickly switch to your theme.

Just go to Gmail's Themes page, go to the "custom themes" section and pick "share your theme" if you already use "custom light" or "custom dark". If you don't use them, click "custom light"or "custom dark" and select a background image.


You can share your theme by email, using Google+ or you can simply copy the URL generated by Gmail. Here's an example.


When someone clicks the URL, Gmail will show a "theme change confirmation" dialog.
