Google Drive integrate with Gmail making it easier to users share files with others: "now, you can insert files from Drive directly into an email without leaving your Gmail," informs google.

Even, you can now insert files up to 10GB i.e. 400 times larger than what could be send using Gmail attachment. In addition, "all recipients will have access to the same, most-up-to-date version since those are stored in cloud."

"Gmail will also double-check that your recipients all have access to any files you're sending. This works like Gmail's forgotten attachment detector: whenever you send a file from Drive that isn't shared with everyone, you'll be prompted with the option to change the file's sharing settings without leaving your email. It'll even work with Drive links pasted directly into emails," blogged Google.

To get started, just click on the Drive icon while you're composing a message.

Note, this feature is only available with Gmail's new compose experience, "so you'll need to opt-in if you haven't already."
