Manage space in Google Drive and Google Photos
Since your Gmail, Google Photos, and Google Drive are linked to a single Google account the base 15GB of limited storage is shared between these three. Google has also removed unlimited storage functionality for Photos, so now every photo or video that you will back up on the photos app will take storage.
So if you have storage issues with Gmail, then chances are that the photos app is the culprit here. Just turn off the automatic backup option and delete some photos and videos.
The same is the case with Google Drive, it also shares storage with the other two. So, if you have shared some large files on Google Drive with someone and you forgot to delete them, it’s the perfect time to delete those files and make some storage in your Gmail inbox.
Empty the social/update tab
If you use your Gmail account to sign in to any app like Swiggy, Linkedin, or any other then those apps keep sending you a lot of updates emails that take up storage on the device, just delete them all and you will have some more storage in your account.
Buy more storage
If you use Gmail very often and you are a power user and share a lot of big files, then you should buy storage from Google. By default, Google gives 15GB of free space to every user. So if you need extra space you can always buy some extra storage.
You can search for large emails as well. Just type larger:5m in the search box of your email. This will show you all emails that are larger than 5 MB. Then you can easily delete them.
