The Gmail update lets you receive larger files of upto 50MB but outgoing mails would still be limited to 25MB.
This feature is available on all platforms, no matter which device you are using. So be ready to explore the upcoming gmail feature, rolling out this week. Now more than one billion Gmail users worldwide will get access to receive larger attachment of upto 50MB which has certainly doubled the size of attachment from 25MB, existing limit of received file.
This update has brought up a major change in your experience with Gmail and it is just to make trouble-free receiving of oversized attachments especially from non-gmail users where you need to receive heavy photoshop files, massive images and other downloads.
But sending limit will stick to 25MB as if now but it will definitely be an appreciative decision if sending limit is also extended to 50MB. If it happens so, then all Gmail users will handle both sending and receiving mails at extended level.
Send Massive Attachments With Google Drive
As sending file size limit of Gmail still ramains at 25MB so if your requirement is more than 25MB, you can simply use Google drive that allows to send larger files of upto 5 Terabytes. When you share files through google drive, it gives you authority to restrict access of files to specific people or can allow read-only access.
But one thing keep in mind that you will need to limit your attachment size in order to manage the storage available on your device that has some limit.
Mobile users will need to update their Gmail app if they want to grab this feature, so get ready to visit your Google Play Store.
