With anticipation for Star Wars: The Force Awakens reaching fever pitch, the virus has seemed to spread throughout all of Google's apps with their latest promotional campaign. Beginning when you hit, you will be asked if you want to choose to make your entire Google "universe" part of the Light or the Dark side, meaning when you visit everything from YouTube, to Maps, GMail, and Chrome, references to the film will be spread across your experience. For example, once you open YouTube, the volume control takes on the glow of a light saber while the Google Maps geo marker will become an X-Wing or TIE Fighter. Gmail users will also see a new Star Wars skin to fit your selection. So check out the video for the Google Star Wars Campaign below and let us know which side you chose.
