How to upload files larger than the 25MB limit to Gmail?

Gmail is one of the most popular email service provider in the world with over 1.5 billion people actively using the email service as of 2023. 

While working with Gmail, you might have to switch to platforms like WeTransfer or Sendspace to forward files larger than 25MB since you can only send files up to 25MB with Gmail. 

One reason for this is the security and the other could be the server response time to forward heavy files which might slow down the service. 

However, we can bypass this limit and send files with workarounds.

If your attachment is larger than 25MB Gmail will prompt to upload the file through Google Drive and share a link to it in the email.

If Google Drive is not for you, there is always the opportunity to try and compress/zip the files and then attach. 

Only thing is we need to ensure that the final zipped file size is less than 25MB. 

Hope this helps you today and to work with higher capacity or more features sign up to the paid version.
