How to free up storage in Gmail

This story was originally published on Jun 14, 2020 and last updated on Sep 5, 2020. The 15GB of storage Google allocates to your account for free may sound like a decent amount on paper, but in practice, it's just not very much room to work with in 2020. Given that it's shared across all Google products like Drive and Photos, you may not even realize just which server is taking up all that space on your account.

Mimestream is a new native Gmail app for Mac that almost nails the experience

There are quite a few apps in the Mac App Store that claim to offer a native Gmail experience, but none quite manages to encapsulate the experience well enough, at least the ones I've tried.

Gmail for Android adds nifty shortcut for adding recipients, auto-filling names

After adding a dedicated tab for Google Meet, Gmail for Android is now picking up a nifty shortcut for quickly adding recipients directly from the body of an email. When writing a message, some people like to first work on the body before adding contacts or the subject line. Gmail on the web has long featured a useful shortcut where typing “+” or “@” will auto-fill a person’s name in the body — where it becomes a mailto: hyperlink — and add them to the contacts field as a recipient.
