Google increases Gmail attachments to 10GB with Google Drive integration

Gmail Attachment Limit

Have you ever wanted to send a file attachment in Gmail that’s larger than the 25MB limit? Google (GOOG) has heard your cry and is smartly integrating Google Drive with its Gmail service to allow for attachments up to 10GB, or 400 times the current limit. Attachments are stored in the cloud and recipients “have access to the same, most up-to-date version.” To start attaching 10GB files to your emails, all you need to do is click the Drive icon instead of the usual paperclip icon and choose your file to upload. Google states on its official Gmail Blog that since Drive debuted in April, millions of people have used it to store and share files. Gmail integration with 10GB attachments is just the next logical step for its cloud storage service, and is very welcome for anyone who likes sending big files.
