Google raises limit for incoming Gmail attachments to 50MB




Google has announced a change of its Gmail service, allowing users to receive large attachments. The maximum file size has been increased to 50MB. This does not apply sent attachments.

Gmail Logo Google makes the change announced on his G Suite Blog. In it, the company states that entering the larger file from Thursday for all Gmail users. They should be able to use in the next three days of the new feature.

Until now, there was subject to a limit of 25MB for receiving attachments. For larger files, users must move to Google Drive, so the search giant. Users who want to send yourself an annex, still attached to the limit of 25MB. Why there is no change, Google does not publish. Also does not appear that there are plans to change the maximum file size for outgoing attachments.

Google began in 2004 offering Gmail accounts with 1GB of storage, which initially was seen as a joke. Meanwhile, the free storage increased to 15GB per user, which is shared between Gmail, Drive, and Photos. Google was previously known that since this month javascript files can be sent as an attachment more for safety.
