Google now shares 15GB of storage between Drive, Gmail and Google+ Photos
Google announced on Monday that it is unifying storage across all of its online cloud services, giving you 15GB to upload files between Google Drive, Gmail, and Google+ Photos. Before the change, Google gave 10GB of storage for Gmail and another 5GB for Drive and Google+ Photos, but now it combines and extends across each.
Obviously the feature comes in most handy if you're an avid user of one service, but not another. Say you like using Drive, more than Gmail, you'll be able to get the extra space you need free of charge.
Being the cloud giant that it is, Google has always been pretty relaxed on giving users plenty of storage without charging. But for those who need a bit more, they can purchase 100GB for $4.99 a month and 200GB for $9.99/month.
Along with the changes to how storage is allocated, Google says it will also be bringing updates to the Drive storage page so you'll know where your storage space is going. As seen above, it's all broken down into a chart, which you can simply hover over to see a complete breakdown of services.
According to the Mountain View-based company, you'll see the update hit your Google account in the next few weeks.
