How to attach a file in Gmail using Google Drive
I was trying to send some photos to my father using Gmail. I got a message telling that my attachment exceeds the usual limit of 25 MB, so I can use google drive to share. Usually I use Onedrive for sharing photos with my family. But it takes a long time to upload the photos which I don't like. So I thought of giving a try for google drive
Google drive allows you to share and keep your documents, photos, folders or any attachments. This allows you to store upto 10 GB file size, and can be shared with your friends and family by mail.
This is how I send the file,
While composing the mail there is an icon next to the attach file icon which shows 'insert files using drive'.Click on that.
That leads to a pop up window where you can see three options.
My Drive - shows the documents that is in your mail or the one which you uploaded already.
Shared with me - Shows the files shared with you by anyone.
Upload - where you can upload a new file for sharing.
Click on Upload ,select files from your computer and upload.
Insert the files in your mail and send. Easy!!
Hope this helps...
