Send attachments with your Gmail message
You can add attachments, like files, videos, and photos in your emails. If you want to send large files that are over the attachment size, like videos, you can use Google Drive.
- On your iPhone or iPad, make sure you've downloaded the Gmail app.
- Open the Gmail app .
- Tap Compose Attach .
- Select the file you want to upload.
If you select an image, Gmail will insert it into your message text. To attach the image, tap it Send as attachment.
Tap the file Remove.
You can send up to 25 MB in attachments. If you have more than one attachment, they can't add up to more than 25 MB.
For larger attachments, you can insert using Google Drive.
If you see "Attachments might be unavailable," your network administrator or Internet provider might block "mail-attachment.googleusercontent.com," the domain Google uses to host attachments. Contact your Internet service provider to troubleshoot.
