For a long time, Gmail has maintained a size cap of 25MB on its emails and attachments that can be received, and the company has recently announced that they re now expanding this limit to 50MB.

However, the search giant has stated that the size limit on sending mails through its service will still remain at 25MB for users. This effectively means that Gmail users can now receive larger sized emails from other search clients that offer sending mails with size up to 50MB. Never needing to compress your attachments again.

Considering the fact that the attachments often exceed the 25MB size limit, this can be seen as a welcome gesture by the giant. Needless to say, but for users who desire to exchange larger files can continue to do so as files that exceed the 50MB limit will automatically be store in Google Drive, or alternatively you can upload your files straight away onto the Drive service instead.
