Google is adding a new feature to Gmail that lets you use Google Drive to send large files as attachments. How large? Up to 10GB.
That’s about 400 times larger than the 25MB limit on traditional Gmail attachments.
When you’re composing an email, you’ll now have the choice of hitting the paperclip icon to attach a small file or the Google Drive icon for larger files.
Google provides Drive users with up to 5GB of disk space for free, so if you actually want to send a 10GB file you’ll either need to pay for more storage or buy a Chromebook — since that will net you 100GB of extra disk space for 2 years.
Or you could just upload your files to SkyDrive, Dropbox or another site and paste a link into your email message like you probably do now.
