Gmail, an email client from Google, has decided to increase the size limit of downloading an attached file up to 50 MB. The feature has been made available to everyone from today. Earlier users were able to send or receive a file of maximum of 25 MB size through emails.

This has been revealed through official blog post of Google, “Sending and receiving attachments is an important part of email exchanges. While Google Drive offers a convenient way to share files of any size, sometimes you need to receive large files as direct email attachments. So starting today, you will be able to receive emails of up to 50MB directly.”

It has further more revelled that this extension in size limit is applicable for “receiving” emails only. The sending size limits will remain the same at 25 MB. This means if the sender is using any other email service, the Gmail user will be able to receive the files of up to 50 MB in size, while the sending limit from a Gmail account will remain the same.

As an alternate we suggest to use Google Drive to send larger files as the Google Drive provides you 15 GB of free space to store and share your files.
