Google gives all comers 15 gigabytes' worth of free storage across Gmail, Google Drive, and Google Plus Photos. Not a bad chunk of space just for having a heartbeat.
Of course, more is always better, especially when you don't have to pay for it. And Google is now offering exactly that, though there are a couple small catches.
From now through Sept. 26, you have the opportunity to score an extra 10GB of Google Drive space, no extra charge.
The requirement: Install the new Quickoffice app for Android or iOS--which, incidentally, is also now free. Then sign into your Google account via that app. Presto! You get another 10GB of gratis storage.
What's the catch? First, it won't appear right away; Google says to look for the space increase "in the next few weeks." Second, this isn't a permanent bump, though it is a lengthy one: you get the freebie for the next two years.
Eh, no biggie. That's 2015's problem.
