Google's email service Gmail, which is the world's most popular email client has so long been offering only 25MB as a maximum limit of file attachment to the users, but, now there is really exciting news for those who are concerned on this.
Google has recently announced through its blogpost that Google Drive, the cloud storage service, which was launched in April – to store, create and share files – with integration into Gmail, users can mail the files easily by inserting them from directly from Drive.
Interestingly, with this integration, users can send emails with attachments up to 10GB, which is almost 400 folds larger than what was available. Moreover, as the file is stored in the cloud, all the recipients of the email will be able to access the up-to-date version of it, thereby avoiding the necessity to send the files across the users every time it is updated.
Further, the forgotten attachment detector in Gmail will cross check if the recipients have the access to any files that is being sent by prompting the users to change the file’s sharing settings without leaving email.
How to Send Attachments up to 10GB through Gmail?
Step 1: If you want to compose a new email, click on the Compose button.
Step 2: To add an attachment from Drive, click on the Drive icon as shown in the image.
Please Note: The new feature will be rolled out to all the Gmail users in the coming days and it will be available only with the new compose mode in Gmail.
