These days, Google is keen to unify their product offerings. And today’s the day when it comes to free storage. Rolling out today, users get a total of 15GB shared storage between Google+ Photos, Drive and Gmail. Free.
Shared storage means that users can decide how they want to use it. If you’re light on Gmail but heavy on Google+ photos, this means that you can use more free storage towards uploading full-resolution photos on Google+ than on Gmail. Before, you’d only have 5GB (10GB on Gmail) on each service, without the freedom of choosing what to do with the free storage.
