New York (The Verge) — Google Photos will end its free unlimited storage on June 1st, 2021 theverge.com/2020/11/11/215….
Google Photos has been a great and completely free service for anybody uploading “high”-quality 16MB photos. But in 2021, photo uploads will begin to count against your data cap.
The change will happen on June 1st, 2021, and it comes with other Google Drive policy changes like counting Google Workspace documents and spreadsheets against the same cap. Google is also introducing a new policy of deleting data from inactive accounts that haven’t been logged in to for at least two years.
All photos and documents uploaded before June 1st will not count against that 15GB cap, so you have plenty of time to decide whether to continue using Google Photos or switching to another cloud storage provider for your photos. Only photos uploaded after June 1st will begin counting against the cap. — Dieter Bohn/@verge
