Yesterday was a good news day for Google users and Google fans. First big news was launch of Google Drive and another one was to increment in free space in Gmail from 7.5GB to 10GB (and counting).
When gmail was launched in year 2004, it was offering 1GB quota in inbox. And even 1GB was considered a big one during those days. As always, Google will not make a full stop at 10GB, but it will keep growing (and counting). As per official blog of gmail, this bump to 10GB from 7.5GB is to celebrate launch of Google Drive.
Other options to go for a paid subscription for higher storage, is still in place. Consumers are having an option to buy more storage from Google with plans starting from 25GB for $2.49 per month.
Based on my personal experience I can say that 10GB space is going to be proved more than sufficient for your personal need. Nowadays it has really become tough to consume all the space of gmail unless you stuff your inbox with photo and songs. From the day I started using gmail, I never ran out of space in my mailbox.
I am very sure that Hotmail/Yahoo/Rediffmail will have to come up with new attractions soon; else they are going to lose their customers to Gmail.
Hope you like this article and information. What is your opinion about gmail space increase? Do you believe that 10GB gmail space is okay for you or do you need more?
