Gmail Changes Storage Policy, Giving Users 50 Percent More Room For Email

Official Gmail Blog

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.
