The current storage space for every Google services users is as follows:
- 5GB of documents and Picasa / Google+ photos —
- 10 GB of Gmail storage
Since launching Drive last year, Google has now offered users a unified storage across its products, something that should automatically make Drive a lot more useful to many users.
All Google users now get a combined 15GB of shared storage across Drive, Google+ photos, and Gmail that can be used as they wish. If you’re a light Gmail users, you can devote some (or all) of that 15GB to Drive — immediately making it one of the larger free cloud storage options out there.
For those with who need extra storage space,the cheapest extended storage option is adding 100GB to your Google account for $4.99 per month. (that’s half the price of Dropbox’s 100GB plan), As for those with the $2.49 25GB plan, a Google spokesperson confirmed that users will be able to keep it until they cancel or change their plan — but new users will have to jump in at the 100GB tier. As with so many of Google’s changes, these new Drive plans will start rolling out to users “over the next couple of weeks.”
