Google couples Drive, Gmail and Photo storage together


When Google launched Drive last year, it gave users 5GB of free cloud space. Great for your docs, G+ and photos.
Gmail had its own 10GB of storage, now however Google have decided to couple Drive and Gmail together. This move will make Drive look a far better proposition to its users (like me) so all your files will now have a combined 15GB of storage across Drive, G+, photos and Gmail.

They have scraped one of their tiers, as users could have the 25GB for $2.49 pm. Now lowest option is now 100GB for $4.99 pm. On the face of it, it’s a great deal but for those who were quite happy with 25GB will now have to pay up an extra $2.50 for the 75GB. Looking at the other cloud storage apps out there it’s a great deal.
Current users with the $2.49 plan will be able to kept it but, new users will have to go straight to the 100GB plan.

Google have said that the new changes will be rolling out over the next few weeks.
