Google Photos’ unlimited storage limit ends tomorrow. This is part of Google Photos updating their storage policy starting June 1st. Currently in Google Photos, ‘high resolution’ images can be uploaded indefinitely. This system will be eliminated from the beginning of next month.
Newly uploaded images and videos will be included in 15GB of free storage available on Google Accounts from June 1, 2021. If you run out of free 15GB of storage, you will need to purchase additional storage from Google for a fixed fee to re-upload ‘high resolution’ images.
Currently What happens to images and videos uploaded in high quality?
Uploaded ‘high quality’ images and videos uploaded by May 31, 2021 do not fall within the 15GB storage limit. They will remain free and will be out of Google’s new storage range. If you want to check your current backup quality, you can check it by going to the back up & sync option in the settings.
Google has announced that the new storage limit will not apply to Google Phone users. They will be able to upload ‘high quality’ images indefinitely after June 1st.
Google Photos: Extra storage
If your 15GB data limit is exceeded, you can purchase additional storage from Google and use it. Google offers monthly and annual plans for users in India. Google is offering 100GB of storage for Rs 130 per month and 1 TB of storage plan for Rs 650 per month for those who need more storage.
Those who want annual plans can get 100GB of storage every month by paying Rs 1,300 for a year. Those who want more storage can get 1 TB of storage per month by paying Rs 6,500 a year. Google Mail will notify you when a user’s 15GB free storage expires.
How to use available storage
Approximate information about when a user’s storage limit expires can be found on Google’s platform itself. This approximate information is based on how often your Google Account information, pictures, and videos are backed up.
You can easily manage your backed up photos and videos with a new free tool from Google. You can analyze any contents with the new tool and decide which ones to keep and which to delete.
