Google unifies storage for Apps users

Google has unified its storage quota for Google Apps users across Gmail and Drive.

“We’re replacing the current, separate storage allowances ‚Äî 25GB for Gmail and 5GB for Drive ‚Äî with a single 30GB quota that will cover Gmail, Drive and Google+ Photos,”” the company advised users.


Each user will have a total of 30GB of included storage that can be used across Gmail, Drive and Google+ Photos.


Users who needed extra storage under the old plans may no longer require it. For example, a Gmail user with just 3GB of email stored will be able to store up to 27GB of files in Drive without a need to license additional storage.


Gmail inboxes are no longer limited to 25GB. Each user can store up to 16TB of e-mail by purchasing additional storage licenses.


As before, when users approach their storage quota, additional storage should be purchased to continue using Drive and Gmail normally.


Also as before, files created in Docs, Sheets and Slides, as well as photos in Google+ smaller than 2048px, won’t count against storage quota.
