Taking part in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens hysteria and to celebrate the release of the biggest movie of the year, Google has launched a tool to let you join the light side or the dark side of the force.

With this tool, you can customize the appearance of your Google apps according to your choice. After picking a side (looks like the dark side influenced me more), Google gives all your apps a Star Wars makeover.

Your Gmail will be updated with a new background and your YouTube’s progress bar and volume slider appears like lightsabers. In Google Maps, your position is marked using an X-Wing or a TIE fighter.


Apart from these, other Google products like Google Translate, Chromecast, Chrome, Waze too get a Star Wars makeover. The new Chrome tabs will show pictures from the upcoming mega-movie.

Just head to and choose a side to become a Sith or a Jedi.
