The Gmail team announced a new feature that integrates Google Drive in Gmail to allow you insert big attachments up to 10G in size into emails. It’s a heck of size limitation you may never need in email. Two thumbs up.
You can insert files that are already stored in your Google Drive, or the files that are still on your local computer. You can drag and drop them to insert.
What’s more interesting is that the new feature acts like a smart assistant that warns you with the option to change the file’s sharing settings whenever you send a file from Drive that isn’t shared with everyone.
The new Drive feature in Gmail is part of the Gmail’s new compose experience released a few weeks back. You will have to opt-in to take advantage of it.
The new feature has rolled out to all Gmail users but for Google App users you may have to wait for a bit longer to have this feature show up in your mail app.
