15GB unified Storage from Google

If you don’t see the point of keeping data you have stored across assorted Googleservices separate then you’re in luck: The company agrees with you. Google announced on Monday that it is giving users “15 GB of unified storage for free to use… between Drive, Gmail, and Google+ Photos,” thus giving them more flexibility to use their data space as they see fit. Users who want more storage across multiple services can pay $4.99 a month for 100GB of additional space as well, the company said. The new unified data plan will give a particular boost to Google Drive since the cloud storage service will act as the hub for online storage across all Google services.
With this new combined storage space, you won’t have to worry about how much you’re storing and where. For example, maybe you’re a heavy Gmail user but light on photos, or perhaps you were bumping up against your Drive storage limit but were only using 2 GB in Gmail. Now it doesn’t matter, because you can use your storage the way you want.
