Google has announced that from June 1, 2021, all content added to the company’s photo platform – regardless of quality – will be added to the account holder’s 15GB of storage. In addition, users will have to purchase more space by signing up for a Google One subscription. Thanks, until the time limit expires, it is still possible to upload unlimited photos, which will not be considered for future storage.
Currently, high quality backup images to Google Photos are stored for free and in unlimited numbers, however the files are compressed slightly to save storage space. Videos above 1080p are also reformatted to HD (1080p). Only imported photos in their original quality are currently deducted from the 15GB storage capacity limit for Google Accounts, and users will have to pay more.
From June 1, 2021, all new photos and videos uploaded – regardless of quality – will be counted within the storage capacity allowed by a user. After using S15 Gen 15GB, users will need to sign up for Google One via a paid subscription to store more photos online in their Google Account.
However, images uploaded before the cutoff date are not included in the 15GB cap, so users can take advantage of the warning to upload their photo archives. After that, anyone who wants to stay in their 15GB storage generic storage will inevitably need choices.
Google One is an umbrella service for all of Google’s online storage services (Gmail, Drive, Photos).
Note that owners of Google Pixel smartphones will continue to enjoy generous and unlimited storage space for all high quality photos and videos uploaded from their device.
