Google Drive integration gets amped up to 10GB attachments (or links) through Gmail

Google adds Drive integration to new Gmail composer - amps up to 10GB attachments through Drive link

If you haven't enjoyed the imposed 25MB limit on Gmail attachments, this news should put a smile on your cloud dial. Google are ushering in a new Drive integration feature that will allow users to bake in files that you have in your Drive account.


These files can be up to 10GB in size - and instead of sending them to the user, it provides a link to your file in your Drive account. This feature hasn't rolled out to everyone just yet, but if you're lucky enough to receive the new composer tool, you'll see the Drive logo in the bottom toolbar and away you go - the sky is the limit (get it?!).

Just click the icon, choose your file and if your recipient doesn't have access, Google will prompt you to provide them with permission by the end of the e-mail. Since the file is already in the cloud, any changes made to the file after the message is sent will be instantly visible to the user, a handy additional feature.
