Google announced today that it is unifying storage across all of its online cloud services. They also announced that they are upgrading every user to 15GB of free storage, rather than the normal 5GB. The 15GB of storage is used for Gmail, Drive and Google+ Photos.


The extra space comes in handy if you are using the cloud services daily, all of the extra storage will allow you to upload more documents and photos to the cloud – for free.

If you need more though, Google is offering a 100GB upgrade for $4.99/month and 200GB for $9.99/month.

Google is also updating the Drive storage page so you can see what uses the most the data and how much free space you have left. As seen in the photo above, it is split into an easy to read chart, where you can hover and see a complete breakdown.

According to the company, users will get the update in the next few weeks.
