Is Gmail storage full? Here’s how to make space for other emails

If you want to be free of the notifications or updates sent by these apps and others, you need to unsubscribe to those notifications in their setting section. The second way is to manually delete those emails if you don’t feel lazy. But, if you don’t delete emails from time to time, it will pile up and will become difficult for you to delete all of them at once. If your Gmail storage is about to get full, Google will start warning you and ask you to delete older emails to get new ones.

If you don’t want to delete the unnecessary emails on Gmail, then you can buy extra storage from Google. The search giant offers 15GB of free storage to every user. This 15GB storage is for the Google Drive files, emails, Google Photos, and more. But, people are obsessed with smartphones and its usage has increased by a very high percentage. Hence, filling up 15GB storage space is not hard. Also Read - Google Meet app for Android gets new interface and features

For those who need additional storage space, they can pay to start from Rs 130 per month in the country to get an additional 100GB space on Google Drive. But, if you don’t want to buy storage space, then you will have to do some hard work to free up space. First of all, open Gmail and type “has:attachment larger:10M” in the search bar. You will witness emails with over 10MB attachments or files, which you can then delete.

After that, you also need to empty your trash. If you get a lot of unnecessary emails from apps like Twitter, YouTube, and others, you just need to type that app name in the search bar and delete all the emails all at once. This will save a lot of time and you don’t even have to check every email carefully. Apart from this in Gmail, you need to delete files by size in Google Drive and Photos to free up some storage space.
