Now users can do the efficient use of their free storage. If a user do not use Gmail enough, but use Drive for storing files. He can now store files of more than 5 GB.

Google is also updating Google Drive storage page to make this plan clear. It will also add the premium plans on that page so that interested users can upgrade to get more storage.

“We’ll also be making updates to the Google Drive storage page, so you can better understand how you’re using storage space. Simply hover over the pie chart to see a breakdown of your storage use across Drive, Gmail, and Google+ Photos. And if you need more storage, this is your place to upgrade, with plans starting at $4.99/month for 100 GB,” the company added in the blog post.

If you still think that 15 GB is not enough for your work, you can upgrade your account to get more storage. These changes to storage will be rolled out over next couple of weeks. This will also apply to all Google Apps users.
