Gmail to allow attachments as big as 10Gb

Nov. 28, 2012 at 5:03 PM   |   Comments

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 28 (UPI) -- Google says Gmail users can now attach files as large a 10 gigabytes to emails as long as the files are stored in Google Drive cloud storage.

The new integration, set to be introduced gradually over the next few days, will require users to utilize Google's recently launched Gmail compose windows, Slash Gear reported.

Since files are attached through Google Drive -- Gmail itself wouldn't be able to store a 10 gigabyte file -- every recipient of the email will get the most up-to-date version, Google said, including any changes made to the attachment even after the email is sent.

Users will have the option to change the attached file's sharing settings without leaving Gmail, and Gmail will double-check that all of the recipients have access to the attachments being sent.

The new capability follows Google's ongoing strategy of seamless integration between its various services.
