If you don’t see the point of keeping data you have stored across assorted Google services separate then you’re in luck: The company agrees with you. Google announced on Monday that it is giving users “15 GB of unified storage for free to use… between Drive, Gmail, and Google+ Photos,” thus giving them more flexibility to use their data space as they see fit. Users who want more storage across multiple services can pay $4.99 a month for 100GB of additional space as well, the company said. The new unified data plan will give a particular boost to Google Drive since the cloud storage service will act as the hub for online storage across all Google services.
