Every year Google celebrate fool’s day with their subscribers in some innovative ways. The same trend follows this year also.Yesterday on a Gmail blog Google has announced the introduction of new Google custom theme feature with sharable Selfies termed as “Shelfies”.

The blog post says

“Gmail Shelfie is built on the idea that you shouldn’t be selfish with your selfie. With just a few clicks, your mom, your aunt, or that girl you have a crush on can set your Shelfie as their Gmail theme so they can enjoy checking, reading, and writing emails while seeing your friendly face in the background.”

The blog post and feature is well crafted in such a way that an average Gmail user will never come to know that they have fooled. Happy Fools day 🙂
