Gmail Now Offers 10 GB of Free Storage
[ Business]

With Google Drive officially going online today, the company is celebrating the launch by increasing free Gmail storage to 10 GB, up from roughly 7.5 GB. According to the Gmail Blog, the changes will take effect over the next 24 hours or so.

As for the launch of Google Drive, users can start out with free accounts at 5 GB, which beats out the 3 GB DropBox offers, though the company will likely now expand to 5 GB as well. For users who require more cloud space, Google Drive pay plans are as follows:

25 GB for $2.49 per month
100 GB for $4.99 per month
1 TB for $49.99 per month

Gmail accounts will automatically be increased to 25 GB for users who sign up for any of the Google Drive plans. It’s not clear if the increase in email space is permanent, or if it goes back down to 10 GB once a user stops subscribing to Drive.
