Google Custom Backgrounds: Google Goes Bing’s Way With Background Photos

Bing backgrounds have been very popular with users, and there are several software which allow you to download Bing backgrounds to your desktop. However, is Google copying the same feature from Bing?

Google Custom Backgrounds

To many it may be yes, with the news that Google just announced custom backgrounds for the Google homepage, which can be uploaded by users and used as backgrounds on Users will be able to choose from a photo on their computer or from their Picasa Web Album or public gallery.

In addition to that, Google will also provide an easy way to switch between the background image and the simple UI Google currently provides with a single click. The feature will be available to US users over the next few days. This feature will also be available to international Google users in the near future.

So are you going to personalize your Google homepage? Do you think that Google has finally taken a leaf out of Bing’s book? Do let me know through your comments.
