Google is rolling out a new feature on Gmail. From today, Google Drive will be integrated into Gmail. With this integration, Gmail users can now send file size up to 10 GB (400 times larger than the usual attachment).
Of course, if you are familiar with Google Drive, you will know that Google is using the Google Drive to store the attachment to the Cloud and the user can simply follow the link to download it.
And because the limitation of the Google Drive is 10GB file size, the attachment naturally cannot be more than 10GB. Google has also added a feature into the Google Drive attachment. User will have the option to choose if they want this file to share publicly or just to share with the people in the mail.
I feel that this is might be the future way to attach mail. BTW, the feature will be rolling out in the next few days. Don’t freak out if you cannot see it now. And also, you will need to use the new Gmail Compose to see the feature.
