After 1 June 2021, Google will limit the free storage on Google Photo to 15GB and for any extra storage, users will have to pay.
Google Photos’s unlimited free storage offer is ending this month. Google Photo is one of the best photo storage platforms available on the Internet. This service offers unlimited free storage for high quality photos and videos.
In November last year, Google announced that the company would not offer unlimited free storage for ‘high quality’ photos on Google Photo from June 1, 2021. After 1 June 2021, the company will limit free storage on Google Photo to 15GB and for any extra storage, users will have to take a monthly Google One subscription which is a paid service.
146 rupees will have to be paid every month
From June 1, 2021, high-quality content will be stored, but it will be included in the storage of your Google Account. This means that once you reach your storage limit, you can subscribe to Google One for extra cloud storage or delete some data to continue the free storage option in Photos. The subscription plan for Google One starts at $ 19.99 (Rs 1467) per year (about $ 1.99 per month, which is about Rs 146), in which you will get 100 GB of data every month.
Service will be free for Pixel users
However, this change does not apply to pixel users around the world. If you own a Pixel device, you will continue to get unlimited free high quality photo backups on Google Photo. It is worth noting that all photos and videos uploaded in high quality before June 1, 2021 will not be placed in the 15GB storage of the Google account of the users.
Discounts will be available on data saved before June 1
Google says, “Any photos or videos you uploaded before 1 June 2021 in high quality will not count towards your 15GB of free storage. This means that the photos and videos before June 1, 2021 will still be considered free and the storage limit has been waived for this. “
Existing Google Photo users should upload all their photos and videos in high quality immediately. The high-quality tier offered in Google Photo allows you to store up to 16-megapixel photos and videos up to 1080p resolution.
