Google Photos is genuinely the most popular and best option when it comes to photo sharing and storage. Since its initial release in 2015, the service has received many new features, improvements and more. The key feature of the service was the unlimited storage of photos and videos, which are stored in high quality. Instead, the original quality takes up the required space from your Google Account quota.
Thanks to this unlimited storage, many smartphone users rely heavily on Google Photos to store their photos in the cloud. Well, that all needs to change, as the search engine giant has decided to put an end to this offer of unlimited storage—all you need to know about this new solution and what it means to you.
Google Photos: Unlimited memory will expire this month!
Google has now decided to stop offering unlimited storage of high-quality photos and videos from June 1. It means that only this month you have the necessary measures if you rely heavily on this service. From June 1, Google Photos will use the existing 15GB quota from your Google Account to store photos and videos. With that in mind, you now have two options to go further: you can either purchase new plans to continue using Google Photos or download these files offline and possibly look for some alternative.
You will need to subscribe to the Google One platform to continue using the service. Here is a list of plans we are considering:
15 GB of memory (available) - free
100 GB of memory - $ 1.99 per month or $ 19.99 per year
200 GB of memory - $ 2.99 per month or $ 29.99 per year
Seat for 2 TV - $ 9.99 per month or $ 99.99 per year
Depending on your storage needs, you can choose any of the Google One storage plans mentioned above to continue using Google Photos. In addition to easy storage, Google One also offers some additional benefits.
Access Google Experts
Opportunity to add your family
Additional benefits for participants
Some cashback offers in the Google Store (depending on the plan)
If you rely heavily on Google services like Photos, Drive, and Docs, subscribing makes more sense. If you don't want to pay Google to store your photos and videos, then you can upload all of those photos offline.
