Google unifies storage across Gmail, Google+, Drive, users now have 15GB shared across all services

Google combines Gmail, Google+, and Drive storage into one 15GB pool

Google has decided to lump all of your free storage into one plan. Instead of having a separate 10GB of data for Gmail and Google+ and 5GB for Drive, users will be presented with 15GB that can be used in any combination. Don't have a lot of e-mail saved? You now have more room for your cloud storage needs.

Conversely, if you don't use Gmail at all, you have just been given an extra 10GB of storage space to use for Google Drive. Google's Drive page now features a visualization of how much space you are using next to available upgrade plans. The changes will roll out to users and Google Apps users over the next few weeks, so don't worry if you don't have the change quite yet.

We want to hear your thoughts on this change. Let us know what you think in the comments!
