Google Wants You To Awaken the Force Within Your Apps

Google is running a new campaign for Star Wars: The Force Awakens that allows you to choose your side–light or dark–to rebrand your Google apps experience online.

If you browse to Google’s Star Wars site you can choose which side of the Force you want to commit to. Once you do that the various Google apps you use such as Chrome, YouTube, and Gmail, will now sport a distinct themed look in the vein of the Dark Side or Light Side of the force. I opted for the Dark Side, because they’re villains and gear just looks cooler, so now every time I open a new tab in Chrome it gets a background from The Force Awakens that is full of the Dark Side.

You can check out the trailer for this campaign above, but the real magic occurs once you hit the link a few lines up, so make sure to choose your side to awaken your inner Force affinity.
