Small bit of news, but useful for those of us firmly entrenched in the Android fan club: Google has released an official Android skin for Gmail. Changes are light - mainly consisting of light gray circuits on a white background, and an infusion of green for highlights.


All your Gmails are belong to us.

To select the theme, open up your Gmail on your PC and head to Settings (top right), then Themes. Then, select the Android theme - should be on the bottom row, third from the right.

I'm using the theme now, and it's surprisingly easy on the eyes - there's a lot less bright green than you'd imagine based on the above screenshot. Only takes a few seconds to try out, and it's easy to switch back, so give it a shot!

    Is it possible to eliminate the conversation feature of Gmail on my Incredible Android phone?

    • Aaron Gingrich

      Sorry, the conversation feature? I don't follow =X

  • Herb

    Conversation View:
    (sets whether emails of the same topic are grouped together)
    Conversation view on
    Conversation view off
    This is from web Gmail, settings. I'd like to be able to do the same on my phone Gmail.

    • Aaron Gingrich

      Don't think it's possible to do this on the phone, sorry Herb =\

    Unfortunately those of us using Google Apps don't have access to themes.

      Very true =\

    Would be nice if they had a night version.
