Gmail Increases Storage

Friday, April 1st, 2005 · 3 Comments

As I suspected they might do at some point, Google has increased the capacity of Gmail as of this morning. “Our plan is to continue growing your storage beyond 2GBs by giving you more space as we are able.” My account is showing a total of 1308 MB right now.


On the Gmail login page, they even have an April Fool’s joke about offering a “top secret Infinity+1 storage plan.” Who knows? They just might some day as storage becomes cheaper and cheaper.


Still, today also brings a cool new Gmail feature, rich text formatting for sending messages.

There are still plenty of features I’d like to see — increased file size of per-message attachment, “locking” of display external images on a per-message or per-sender basis, more keyboard shortcuts, message backup, etc. — but I’m sure Gmail will only continue to get better over time. I continue to be very happy with it.

    This is funny… I’ve been watching my Gmail account capacity gradually increase throughout the day. It’s currently at a total of 1548 MB.

    You are currently using 21 MB (1%) of your 2051 MB.

    I am way cooler than you!

    This kicks ass. My total was also 2051 MB yesterday, but today it’s up to 2054 MB. Seems to be gradually increasing (I guess the login page with the increasing counter isn’t lying).

    Very cool. Go Google!
