Gmail users can now receive attachments up to 50MB; Sending limits remains same 25MB
Google has just made an important change to Gmail. If you exchange lots of file on email, you will be happy to know that you can now receive attachments of up to 50MB size in Gmail.
This change in limit is only for attachments you receive. Sending size limit is still same at 25MB. So, you still need to use Google Drive to send larger attachments in email.

You must know that the size limits are not for the individual file but for the total size of your email. Sending and receiving larger files over email is not possible with other email service providers as well.
As the Gmail users cannot send emails of the size larger than 25 MB, this change in limit is helpful only if a non-gmail user is sending an email with an attachment of size up to 50 MB.
The new change should be rolling out to all Gmail users in coming days.
