Attention, Gmail users. This could be good for all 425 million of you. Google is changing the way it allocates storage space on Gmail.

In a blog post on Monday, the search giant announced that it would now give users 15 GB total of storage space for Gmail, Google+ Photos and Google Drive. Previously, you had just 10 GB for Gmail and then 5 GB for the other services. Let's be honest, not that many people use Google's social network or its document service. Right? So most of us will basically be getting 5 GB more of Gmail storage.

The changes will roll out to users over the next few weeks.
