Gmail Increases Storage To 10 GB, 30 GB If You Buy Storage For Google Drive

Google Has finally launched Google Drive yesterday after so may days of rumors. With the launch of this cloud storage service, Google has also increased free storage amount of Gmail to 10 GB which was 7.5 GB earlier.

“Today, we’re happy to announce that we’re increasing everyone’s free storage in Gmail from 7.5 GB to 10 GB (and counting) to celebrate today’s launch of Google Drive. The increase will take effect over the next 24 hours. We hope you all enjoy the little bump!,” Nicholas Behrens, software engineer at Google, wrote in Gmail blog.

Gmail was started as a free email service with 1 GB of free storage, eight years ago. After that Google continually increased the amount of free storage. It was 7.5 GB for past few years which is really hard to fill for most of the Gmail users.

Now, all users have automatically been upgraded to 10 GB. However, if you are a Google Drive user and buy some additional storage for it you will also get more storage in your Gmail account.

For example, if you go for the cheapest option, the $2.49 a month for 25 GB you get a total of 30 GB for Google Drive and 26 GB in Picasa, with 25 GB shared among them. Doing that will also net you 30 GB of storage in Gmail, separate from Picasa and Drive.
