Gmail for iOS Adds Google Drive Features: Save Attachments, Send Files Up to 1TB

Gmail for iOS has received a significant update today to allow Google Drive integration and better account management. You can now save files to Google Drive directly and also send files up to 1TB in size.

Also new is easier account management, which now lets you toggle accounts on and off, plus you can now change your profile picture in Settings. The toggle feature for accounts is brilliant when you don’t want to receive notifications for certain accounts.

What’s New in Version 3.14159
• Save attachments directly to Google Drive so you can access them anywhere while saving space and bandwidth on your device
• Insert Google Drive files directly into messages
• New account management options to choose which accounts you want to have visible in Gmail without removing accounts from your device.
• Change your profile picture (in Settings)

Below are screenshots from the Gmail app after the update, showing you exactly how to take advantage of these new features:
