Google combines cloud storage, offers 15GB of free cloud storage to share between Drive, Gmail, and Google+

Google Shared storage

Managing cloud storage is never fun. Up until today, Google offered 10GB of online storage for Gmail users, and for those using Drive or Google+ instant upload, 5GB of completely separate storage. To help make things a little easier on its users, Google has just announced that users will no longer have to manage separate clouds for Gmail, Drive and Google+. That’s right, starting today, Drive and Google+’s 5GB of free storage, will now be combined with Gmail’s 10GB of storage, creating a single unified chunk of cloud storage in the sky.

To help manage this, Google is also rolling out an update to their Drive storage page, making it easier to see at a glance, how you’re using your cloud storage. Need even more storage? It’s only $5 a month for 100GB. While it was announced today, Google mentions this will be rolling out over the next few weeks, so don’t freak if you haven’t seen the changes right away.
