Google increases free Gmail storage

Google is providing users with more free storage on its internet-based email service

Google has increased the free storage available to its Gmail internet service users to 10GB.

The service launched in 2004, offering users 1GB of cloud-based storage. That amount has steadily been increasing over the years, and peaked at 7GB earlier this week, before the latest update.

The increase in storage comes with the launch of a new service by the web giant, Google Drive.

Drive is a cloud storage service aimed at competing with Dropbox and Microsoft’s Skydrive.

Google Drive offers 5GB of cloud-based storage, allowing users to store, collaborate on, and share documents as well as other files.
