Google recently launched Google Drive back in April, now they’ve integrated it to your Gmail accounts. Now you can share files you’ve stored in your Google Drive through email. Previously we’ve been limited to the usual 25MB file restrictions with attachments, now you can insert files of up to 10GB. Since the files are stored on the cloud, all recipients will have access to the same, most-up-to-date version.

Gmail also makes sure that whoever your sending the file to has access to it as well. If it isn’t shared with whoever your sending it to, you’ll be prompted to changed the file sharing settings without leaving your email. All you need to do is click on the Drive icon while you compose your message to share files with other people. Google says that they’ll be rolling it out in the next few days and will only work with Gmail’s new compose experience, so you have to opt in before using Google Drive with your Gmail.
