Do you ever face a situation, when you want to send your friends files of greater size? But due to size limitation, you need to send those files in parts. But don’t worry, this feature is now gone old. Gmail has now increased the size limit of attachments. Gmail Users can now receive emails of up to 50 MB.
Gmail Users can Now Receive Emails of up to 50 MB
Earlier, Gmail users can only receive an attachment of size of 25 MB. But from now onward, Gmail users will be able to receive emails of up to 50 MB. Google announced in a blog post about this new feature. The blog reads,
“Sending and receiving attachments is an important part of email exchanges. While Google Drive offers a convenient way to share files of any size, sometimes you need to receive large files as direct email attachments. So starting today, you will be able to receive emails of up to 50MB directly.”
However, Google has not increased the size limit for sending file. This update is only available for receiving files. The sending size limits will remain the same at 25MB. So, we can say that, by using any other email service, Gmail users can receive the files of up to 50MB in size. However, they can only send the files of up to 25 MB.
Just like before, Gmail users need to use Google Drive to send larger files. Google Drive provides 15 GB of free space to store and share files. Moreover, Gmail users can avail this feature within 1 to 3 days.
Last year, Google has announced an improved security feature in Gmail that is security of incoming emails by alerting users if they are sending messages over an insecure connection. Google was already using Transport Layer Security (TLS) cryptography and now firm has taken the extra step of using visible icons to warn of potential danger.
