From June 1, Google will only offer a total of 15GB of free storage for all Google services, including Gmail.
Gmail is a service used by billions of people to send e-mail. But Gmail can get messed up quickly, because promotional messages and updates come and go in your Gmail inbox.
With Google Photos’ free service ending on June 1st, it is imperative that you delete old unread and unwanted messages in your Gmail. From June 1, Google will only offer a total of 15GB of free storage for all Google services, including Gmail.
Gmail, Google Photos, Google Drive and other Google services now come with 15GB of free storage. Until now, Google Photos had unlimited storage. Now if you delete unwanted emails in Gmail you will get more space for Google Photos. Here’s how to delete emails and increase Google storage.
To delete emails
Open Gmail and type “has: attachment larger: 10M” into the search bar. You will then receive emails with attachments larger than 10 MB which can be deleted. To delete mails larger or smaller than this, just enter another number of ’10’ and search. After that you can select and delete everything from the result. Then you can go to the Trash folder and delete the files and add storage. It’s an easy way to delete mails.
What to do to avoid storage in the future
First unsubscribe from all the unwanted emails and then delete the old ones. If you’ve signed up on any website that sends a lot of promotional messages and newsletters, you can also unsubscribe and avoid getting mails. According to Google, even if you unsubscribe, it may take a few days for the emails to stop. To unsubscribe,
- Open your Gmail account
- Open a mail from the site to unsubscribe
- Click the unsubscribe button next to their name
- Next you will get a pop up, click on Unsubscribe.
In some cases you may need to log in to the site and unsubscribe from the mail. This means that if you now unsubscribe from Twitter’s mail, you can go straight to Twitter’s site and turn off the email option from there.
To delete all the old mails of the sender of the mail, you can enter his name in the search bar and search and delete. This means that if you search for Twitter to delete emails received from Twitter, you will find all of your emails and select and delete them all at once.
