Currently, when composing an email in Gmail, people have the option to share Google documents and other files stored in Drive via links by clicking on the ‘Insert files using Drive’ button.
With this launch, Google enable the option to share files in Drive as attachments, allowing the file owner to remove the source file from Drive if so desired, without needing to worry about also removing access to the file from recipients.
When clicking on ‘Insert files using Drive,’ you’ll now see the buttons below in the lower right corner of the insert window. Clicking theAttachment button will add your selected file as an attachment. Inserting files as Drive links will be the default option:
- This feature only applies to files that weren’t created in Drive (so Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, etc will not work)
- Gmail attachments have a 25MB limit
Rapid release, with Scheduled release coming in early January 2015
