Unlimited storage is being removed from Google Photos from next Tuesday. Google Photos has users all over the world. Google’s decision will disappoint millions of users. However, with more features, Google Photos is trying to give users a new taste.
Google’s decision to discontinue its Unlimited Storage plan will no longer allow more than 15 GB of storage in your Google Account. Previously, there was an unlimited storage facility for Google Footage. Now with Google Footage, Gmail, Google Drive and other storage up to 15 GB will be available for free only.
You have to pay for more space. From Tuesday, all high-quality and express quality new photo and video backups will be counted in the free 15 GB storage that comes in the Google account, Google has mentioned.
After that, you have to pay to keep backups and videos in Google Footage. If you have a file backup of more than 15 GB, you pay $1.99 for one month and. 19.99 for one year.
For this fee, you can store files up to 100 GB.
