My total storage is now around 8 GB. I think I'm still good for a few years. I have over 15000 photos and videos on Google Photos. And a few thousand more on Google Drive. I'll go with Google One and get 100 GB. For me the price is right. I'm an Apple user!
The 15GB of free storage capacity that you get when you sign up for a Google account includes data from Drive, Gmail, and Photos. It is important to note that your existing high-quality Photos backups do not count towards this limit, and that the change applies to new uploads of this configuration only. The change in policy aligns with a similar modification that was made to users that backed up ‘Original quality’ images.
Moving forward, unless users purchase more storage, they will eventually be affected by the combined storage policies and backup limitations. Google plans to begin notifying customers who are approaching the 15GB limit and will also release a new tool that will help users manage photos and delete unwanted, blurred, or dark images by automatically categorizing them.
Once upon a time, Google Photos offers free unlimited photo storage, which we loved. However, this convenient (and wallet-friendly) service has since come to an end, leaving many wondering what the best alternatives for Google Photos are. Lucky for you, we found ’em.
