Google Photos had brought a revolution in 2015 when it announced its free photo and videos unlimited storage service. This allowed users to upload their favorite moments to the cloud without thinking much about their limited storage spaces.
But, starting next month, the unlimited storage option will not be available to everyone anymore. As Google had announced earlier, starting June 1, 2021, Google Photos will count all the uploaded images and videos against the free 15GB storage with your Google account. However, if you still don’t want to miss out, you can do that before the deadline, as any photos or videos uploaded before the deadline will not count towards the free storage limit.
Back in November 2020, Google had told that there is no other way but to disembark the primary cost of running the service and accepting the primary value of online storage. Users will also get a new feature starting June 1 that will be an AI tool that will analyze your stored files and suggest if you want to get rid of blurry photos or video clips that are too big to fit on the 15GB free limit.
However, Pixel Users will be getting a special treatment from Google as they will continue enjoying unlimited storage. But not forever, For Pixel 2 and Pixel 2, XL owners will get unlimited storage until 2021 and Pixel 3 and Pixel 3Xl until January 31, 2022, and so on.
If you still wish to have a higher storage option, Google has different price segments. The 100GB tier for the plan costs $1.99 per month or $19.99 per year. The highest professional plan goes up to 10TB for $99.99, 20TB for $199.99 and 30TB for $299.99 per month.
