Even though Gmail has maintained a size cap of 25MB on emails and attachments that can be received through its service for a long time, Google has announced that it is now expanding this limit to 50MB. As of now, Google will allow to receive file extension up to 50 MB per email. Despite this, many email providers still place a strangely low limit on the size of files that can be sent and received as attachments.

Thanks to cloud file-sharing services like Google Drive, Microsoft's One Drive, and Dropbox, it's easy to share files via email of pretty much any size. At least in one direction, Google is now giving up this limitation. With 50 MB many must have found a good limit, which should be sufficient for 99.9 percent of the applications.

There have been hundred such instances with all of us when our attachments on Gmail failed because they exceeded the 25 MB limit put up by Google. Why the limit is not raised in the other direction is still a secret of Gmail developers. "While Google Drive offers a convenient way to share files of any size, sometimes you need to receive large files as direct email attachments", Google said in its blog post.

Just a few weeks ago, Gmail had made a further change to the handling of attachments.

Previously, Google allowed attachments only up to 25 MB on Gmail. Starting from today, users will be able to receive emails of up to 50MB.
