Description


You can add Gmail and Inbox attachments up to 25 MB—but what if you have larger files such as videos?

Save these large files in Google Drive, then insert a link to the Drive file in your email.

If your recipients don’t have viewing permissions for the file, you can grant them access in Inbox and Gmail before sending.
