Google has added a new feature to its Gmail accounts this week, which has been created to enable Google Drive users to attach files up to 10GB in size to their Gmail emails with ease.
Rather than sending the 10GB file via your ISP and causing untold problems, Google simply provides an easy way to link your Google Drive files to your Gmail, providing you with a convenient way to send files that are 400 times larger than traditional email attachments.
“Have you ever tried to attach a file to an email only to find out it’s too large to send? Now with Drive, you can insert files up to 10GB — 400 times larger than what you can send as a traditional attachment. Also, because you’re sending a file stored in the cloud, all your recipients will have access to the same, most-up-to-date version. “
” Like a smart assistant, Gmail will also double-check that your recipients all have access to any files you’re sending. This works like Gmail’s forgotten attachment detector: whenever you send a file from Drive that isn’t shared with everyone, you’ll be prompted with the option to change the file’s sharing settings without leaving your email. It’ll even work with Drive links pasted directly into emails.”
