Google announced yesterday that Google users will have their Gmail, Google+, and Google Drive storage combined into 15 GB of unified cloud storage. The purpose of creating a unified storage system is to make it more seamless to share and upload files between the 3 Google platforms.
While this is not exactly an increase in space – Gmail originally provided 10GB of space while Google+ and Google Drive shared a combined 5GB – it allows you to allocate the space more freely by determining exactly what you would like to use the space for. We’ve mentioned before in one of our webinars that Google is focused on the continued happiness of its users, and this is yet another step in that mission.
A pie chart on your new Google Storage Page will reveal how much space you are using and how much you still have free; and, if you need more space, you can easily upgrade to 100GB+ for as little as $4.99/month.
Google’s unified storage is said to be rolling out in the upcoming few weeks, so keep your eyes peeled on the Google Drive blog to learn more!
