Are you down with the Light Side or the Dark Side of The Force? Google is letting you display your allegiance across its platforms (GMail, Google Maps, Chrome, etc.)
Clearly, Star Wars: The Force Awakens has more marketing money than a little bit.
The tweaks to Google apps include new Gmail backgrounds, a YouTube progress that looks like a light saver, 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.
Wisely, you must choose, right here.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is in theaters Dec. 18.
