Google just announced that it is increasing its basic storage option for Google Drive from 5GB to 15GB and will be shared by Gmail, Google+ and Google Drive.

The announcement was made a few days before the company’s annual developer conference – Google I/O, with the roll out is expected to happen in the next couple of weeks. The increased storage now puts Google ahead of other companies that provide free online storage including Dropbox, Microsoft’s Sky Drive, Amazon’s Cloud Storage, Appe’s iCloud and SugarSync to name a few.

Google has yet to indicate the reason for its decision to increase its basic offering for its cloud storage service but it might be a good indication on the company’s future plans for it or for its complementary products. Nevertheless, Google I/O is just around the corner so expect the clarifications to be made during the event.
