In a recent blog post, Google announces that from now on users will get 15 GB of free ‘unified’ storage space for using Gmail, Google drive, and Google+ photos. Previously, it was 10 GB for Gmail, 5 GB for Drive and Google+ Photos.
However, Google is offering 30 GB of storage space to its enterprise customers across Drive and Gmail. Storage will also be shared with photos users upload to Google+ larger than 2048px.
Also, users can now upgrade to any amount of additional storage instead of previously specified 25 GB space with plans starting at $4.99/month for 100 GB.
The Google drive storage page will also be upgraded in order to provide with a clear picture of the available space like those in the computer hard drives. By simply hovering over the pie chart, one can easily see the breakdown of his/her storage use across Gmail, drive and Google + photos.
This change by Google in optimizing the storage space across Gmail, Google drive and Google + photos may ease the users life as with all products coming together, users can freely make use of the available free storage space according to their requirements.
