Gmail Gets New Google One Storage Manager Feature

Storing the various data that you accumulate on a day to day basis can be a real pain, even if you have free data storage as is the case with Google users. 15 gigabytes can seem like a lot of storage space, but in spite of the fact that this is the case it can quickly run out especially when you are using it across so many different platforms. It seems that Google is trying to fix this with a new update to Gmail.

This update will allow users to tap on their profile icon on the Android and iOS Gmail apps and check out a meter that shows them how much storage space they have left. The storage bar will be right under your account details, and with all of that having been said and now out of the way it is important to note that it can really help users to get a better understanding of their storage capacity and how much of it they still have left over.

Previously, Gmail users on smartphones had no way of seeing their storage capacity from within the app itself. Instead, they had to make do with tapping on a Manage Account button which would take them to an external app. Such a feature was inefficient because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up forcing users to make a lot more clicks, so this new update is very likely going to become popular among Google users.

There are now going to be three apps that users can check their storage capacity on, with Gmail joining Google Photos and Google Drive. This feature will also enable users to upgrade their storage with a single tap, something that can drastically increase the length of their purchasing journey with all things having been considered and taken into account.

Internet speeds are increasing and so are file sizes, so managing your storage will become more important over the years. Features like this can be helpful to users that want to keep their storage capacity cleared up for new data.
