Everything you need to know about the Google Storage upgrade

Google just announced that they are putting out an update that would allow customers to increase their storage capacity from 15GB to 1TB. The functionality will be available in the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, Taiwan, Malaysia, and other countries.

Google Workspace, previously known as G Suite, has stated that they are working on some big platform changes, including increased free cloud storage of up to 1TB. In addition, the platform will make advancements in email personalisation and increase its geographical availability to more individuals throughout the globe.

“You can save over 100 file formats in Drive, including PDFs, CAD files, and photos, and you can quickly collaborate on and edit Microsoft Office files without converting them,” Google says in a blog post.

Furthermore, it states that Google Drive will now have built-in defences against malware, spam, and ransomware, ensuring that users are not unwittingly exposed to malware by clicking on a dubious document.

Users who have access to the Workspace account will shortly get an upgrade including 1TB of safe cloud storage (currently they are using 15 GB of storage). Google has officially declared in a blog post that the user account’s storage capacity would be automatically enhanced from 15 GB to 1 TB.

Who will get the update?

Every Google Workspace user will be entitled to 1TB of free cloud storage. They do not need to do anything, and the update will be automatically pushed out and applied.

It has also been stated that Google is improving the platform by introducing a new feature that will allow users to send multi-sent emails. Users will be able to use mail merge tags such as @firstname, allowing each email recipient to get a unique email that seems tailor-made for them. Users may also utilise the multi-send email function, which can be unsubscribed from at any time by clicking on the unsubscribe link, which is now included by default so recipients can opt-out of future mailings.

It has also been stated that Google is increasing Workspace availability in countries such as the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, Taiwan, Malaysia, Thailand, Portugal, the Netherlands, Belgium, Greece, Argentina, and Finland.
