Google Lets You Re-Skin Its Apps Using Light or Dark Side Star Wars Themes

To celebrate the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Google has put together a set of skins for its apps which let you demonstrate your allegiance to either the light or dark side.

The tweaks to Google apps include new Gmail backgrounds, a YouTube progress that looks like a lightsaber, a Maps positions marker that resembles a TIE fighter or X-Wing, and a bunch more subtle tweaks in Chrome, Translate, Chromecast and the like. We prefer the dark side, though we're not sure what it says about us.

Guaranteed fun, for at least a few minutes. In fact, it's kind of reminiscent of the custom options you used to get on Windows, where your swapped alert sounds for train whistles and that kind of thing.

Anyway, you can go choose your side now.

    A fine example of something I didn't realise I wanted until it was given to me. Thanks Google!

    thought it was cool until it started playing lightsaber noises when hovering over the volume in youtube and then it started to annoy me
