Google Allows Gmail File Attachments Of Up To 10GB Each Directly From ‘Drive’

Google has announced that starting today its email service will allow users to insert files directly from its online storage locker Drive into an email without leaving Gmail.

According to Google Product Manager Phil Sharp, Gmail users can now insert a 10 GB file compared with a standard attachment that is 400 times smaller. This upload limit is larger than the free storage space given to each Google Drive user.

Sharp added that sending a file stored in the cloud means all recipients will have access to its most recent version, and Gmail will ensure that they have access to the sent files.

He said, “This works like Gmail’s forgotten attachment detector: whenever you send a file from Drive that isn’t shared with everyone, you’ll be prompted with the option to change the file’s sharing settings without leaving your email. It’ll even work with Drive links pasted directly into emails.”

To use the feature, click on the Google Drive icon when composing a message. Note that the feature will roll out in the coming days and only if you opt-in on Gmail’s new compose experience.
