Now you can receive up to 50MB attachments on Gmail

It might not be a problem that affects us all that often, but we’ve all experienced it. Someone emails you a message asking if you got that PDF or picture they sent over.

You search through your inbox, trash, and spam folders only to discover it’s not there. The reason? It bounces back because the attachment’s size was too big to be received by the addressee.

However, that is changing as Google, which has quite heavy-handed regarding attachment sizes, has finally decided to open up a bit and increase the cap of incoming messages.

Google announced that it has increased the size of attachments you can receive through Gmail, with the maximum size raised from 25MB to 50MB.

While recognising that “sending and receiving attachments is an important part of email exchanges,” Google on its official blog announced that users will now be able to receive emails of up to 50MB directly.

However, Google is still very much wedded to the idea of people using Google Drive as the sending mails remain capped at the same limit as before at 25MB.

Still, Google’s decision to increase the receiving limit is a good omen and hopefully rules will be further relaxed in the future.
