New Gmail Shelfie for perfect selfie theme

Gmail login to email account now showing new Shelfies, is this an April Fools Joke or is it for real? Looks real to us. The new Gmail Shelfies feature went live yesterday promising to provide email with personality.

Selfies are very popular at the moment, even the Ellen DeGeneres Oscar 2014 selfie crashed Twitter for a brief moment. We all know Gmail custom themes are popular but now they have got a whole lot better thanks to the new ‘Gmail Shelfies’, which basically means Shareable Selfies.

When we logged in to Gmail this morning we were prompted with an onscreen instruction (Shown above and below) and we decided we would try it out. It said, Introducing Gmail Shelfie: Email with personality. It gave a brief description and then we had three choices to choose from, Use Top Trending Shelfies / Make my own Shelfie / Keep my current these.

If you decide to click on the ‘Use Top Trending Shelfies’ you will get to see a new Shelfie every hour. To change the Shelfies go to Gmail settings, Themes and then you will see Custom Themes, click on the one saying ‘Trending Shelfies’ and let the fun begin. You can use this section to change your location and this will then change the image.

For more information please visit the ‘Introducing Gmail Shelfie’ page here, check out the Trending Shelfies via your Gmail account here.
