Attention Gmail: Now you can send huge attachments!

Gmail, like other email applications, allows you to send attachments. They are simply dragged into the email body by the computer and we can now send whatever we want to other people. As with other platforms, however, there are limits. This is so that people don’t start sending huge attachments that could even have illegal purposes. However, there may come a time when it is even necessary to send them. In such cases it is possible to bypass this limit and send huge attachments in Gmail.

Attention Gmail: Now you can send huge attachments!

Gmail attachments

Via Gmail it is only possible to send attachments up to 25 MB. We remind you that all texts or images placed by us will also count towards this limit. In other words, if we add a file that is really 25MB in size, we get an error.

However, since this limit is small, there is a trick to bypass it.

For this purpose, and if we want to write a message and send a large file, instead of clicking on the icon that allows us to add an attachment, we just have to use the icon at the bottom next to the emojis. I’m talking about Google Drive, of course.

As soon as we click on this icon, a window appears relative to Google Drive and we can load whatever we want. Just select the Load tab and drag the files.

Then we just choose the link of the drive and hit Load. Remember that if the size is up to 25MB, we can choose the Attachment option. Otherwise it has to be the other option.

In fact, this is a great alternative to sending attachments and with this simple trick the limits are gone.

Sending these types of files through Gmail, and ultimately Google Drive, is definitely a good thing. This is because the files are even scanned for dangerous threats.
