From June 1, 2021, the Google Photos service will limit the amount of files stored on the portal for free
This was reported by The Verge. At this time, each Google account receives 15 GB of free Gmail, Drive, and Photos for free.
But from June 1 next year, Google will start charging for storage after the account uses more than 15 gigabytes. All photos and documents uploaded before June 1 will not be considered for the 15GB limit, so users will have plenty of time to decide whether to continue using Google Photos or switch to another cloud storage provider.
Google notes that the company offers more free storage than others, and also claims that 80% of Google Photos users will not reach the 15GB limit for at least three years.
At the same time, the company will warn users when their storage capacity is full. In addition, Google will improve the features that will help remove unnecessary images – blurred photos and screenshots.
