Gadget Insights: From June 1st, Google Photos will stop the free, unlimited storage of high-quality photo. Although existing high-quality photos and videos are exempt from this.
Although existing high-quality photos and videos are exempt from this and will not count towards the 15GB default storage that comes with a Google account, after June 1st the new high-quality photos and uncompressed original photos will count towards a user’s storage once the policy comes into effect.
Users about to finish consuming 15GB of free storage can free up space by using tools that Google has introduced for Google Photos to weed out unwanted photos and videos. Or users can adjust the quality of the photos so as to reduce the size of the file. Users can also do the same by going to the Manage Storage section in Google One.
If users feel that their storage data is being used up quick and think of paying for extra storage, they can consider paid options which are as follows:
100GB: For Rs.130 a month and for Rs.1300 a year this plan offers 100 GB storage, extra member benefits, the option to add family members, and access to Google experts.
200GB: For Rs.210 a month and for Rs.2100 a year this plan brings 200 GB storage, extra member benefits, the option to add family members and access to Google experts. With extra benefits same as the 100 GB plan.
2TB: This plan comes for Rs.650 a month and for Rs.6500 a year with additional benefits remaining the same also Google gives VPN services for this plan in the US and is likely to expand it to India.
