Gmail Extends Receiving Attachments to 50MB, Still, Keeps the Sending to 25 MB

Gmail limit

You’ll still only be able to send 25MB.

Sharing large memory files through the e-mail was never easier.  Although Receiving and sending attachments through the mail is one of the big quality of the mail exchanges. As Gmail is one of the most prominent used mail for everyday life, being in a modern era, people still favors attaching files more than writing big fat texts. Also, Sharing attachments through the mail makes it more interactive and look fresh for the people.

Gmail Now Lets You Receive 50MB Attachments

As per the announcement on the official Google blog. Google quotes that “Sending and receiving attachments is an important part of email exchanges,” but normally search engines are not capable of handling big files, Gmail sharing previously restricted to 25MB, for both sending and receiving attachments.

Now Gmail extends the limit of receiving files and allows you to receive the emails up to 50 MB in case of attachments. But Google stills keeps the sending limit to 25 MB via Gmail.

In case you need to deal with more larger files, you always have the feature to send and receive them via Google Drive. In fact, the company made this rule for now, but we can still expect some relaxation in the future, But speaking of the policies, if you dive deep into the business, there must be the intention of the company to let you share large files so that your free Gmail space will end up soon. In return, you will be paying for more space requirement in you Gmail so that you can receive more emails at the time.
