Google Drive is the cloud storage service from the search giant Google. Google offers to all users 15 GB space which can be used across various Google services like Gmail, Google Plus, Google Drive etc. So, you can use the full 15 GB as cloud storage space on Google Drive only if you do not use any other Google service.
The 15 GB gets used up pretty quickly if you use services like Gmail extensively and this drastically reduces the available cloud storage space on your Google Drive. Google generally offers additional free cloud storage space to promote its products, but there are a few exceptions to this. So, if your whole tech life is centered around Google, you could easily snap extra free cloud storage space from Google. Do not worry even if you are not one of those Google fan boys. You could always buy additional storage and Google Drive is one of the cheapest cloud storage service out there.
