How to get the new Gmail Theme

Can’t say enough how excited I am about the looming Gmail interface overhaul. Google explains that Gmail will get a face lift over the next few months, but it’s unclear when the changes will go into effect. Until then, you can start using it with this trick:

First, sign in to Gmail and head to Mail settings. Next, go to the “Themes” tab and you’ll see a two new themes, “Preview” and “Preview (dense).” Select one, and your inbox will be instantly graced with a cleaner, more mininal look.

The most important thing is that by using this new look i am now able to use Gmail chat in my slow internet speed . This new look is faster an cleaner .
