Why Gmail is Better Than Other Email Services?

I hope in this interrogation you are confused. Yes, I’m sure Gmail is better than other Email services.The best Email services are like yahoo! Mail, Protonmail, Outlook, iCloud Mail etc.

So much so that it is now accurate to say that Google’s Gmail is better than Yahoo’s Yahoo Mail as compared to Gmail. In fact, in a recent publication by CNBC, it was revealed that Google’s Gmail is the dominant online email service with 1.5 billion global active users.

So world wide people like to use Gmail services for the various purposes of sending and receiving files, folders, documents etc. How do I send a video/audio/images greater than 25 MB in Gmail?

There’s also a catch to Google’s new update. you can only receive files up to 50MB on Gmail, you can’t send files up to 50MB. For the time being, you can only send files up to 25MB.


This is because sending large  files through email is not only unsafe, but it can take up unnecessary server space. This can lead to slower delivery of emails. However, Google likely increased the file size that can be received to support other email services that can send larger files. 

That way, if you have a relative who prefers to send photos via email, then you’ll likely receive them now. If you want to send files that are larger than 25MB, you can do so through Google Drive. If you want to send a file larger than 25MB via email, then you can do so by using Google Drive. 

Once you’re logged into Gmail, click “compose” to create an email. Then, you’ll see a paperclip icon at the bottom of the email that indicates a file attachment. Next to that, you’ll see the Google Drive icon, which is the shape of a triangle. Click the Google Drive icon to select the files that you want to attach from Google Drive.

You can then send the file as a Google Drive link, which works for any of Google’s services such as Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Forms. Make sure that the shared settings are updated so that the intended recipient can see the file. 

If you don’t want to share a Google file, you can also choose to attach a file that isn’t a part of Google’s services. To do this, the file that you want to send can be uploaded to Google Drive.
