It’s done again by Google. It shuts down one of the most common features in its product world: free unlimited storage for Google Photos. From 1 June 2021, the company said it had terminated this operation. All uploaded images will count after this date against the 15 GB limit on your free storage. All images uploaded before 1 June next year are, however, still free of charge under unlimited storage. Google Images, with over 1 billion users, provided users across platforms free unlimited storage of high-quality photos.
It was therefore simple to turn on the back & sync option with this quality configuration and allow your images to be uploaded to the cloud without any storage concerns. I depend on it to back up images of all Android and iOS devices that I have been using over the years. Photos host more than 4 trillion images and videos, with users uploading 28 billion per week, according to the company.
Google Photos unlimited storage ends in 2021
As the photo upload starts next June, the storage cap is counted against. Perhaps you want to check on the images you want to hold daily. Fortunately, the Big G said next year it is going to deploy a new Google Photos storage management app, helping you to clear pictures that may not be worthwhile. You will have to pay up if you do need extra spaces. It may still be sensible to use Google Photos by paying for additional storage through Google One subscription while you are using several devices.
Plans start at $1.99 for 100 GB of storage per month, and prices can differ according to region. You can get up to 2 TB of space on your personal level. Flickr is an excellent service for just storing images. You can host a thousand media objects with an image limit of 200 MB and a video limit of 1 GB. If you just back up items from your phone camera, that’s really convenient. You can also go to Pro at $5.99 a month in annual planning.
