Google Photos will no longer have unlimited free storage.
The novelty has been announced in November 2020 to the dismay of many users.
Thus, as of 1 June is scheduled as a service, storage that exceeds 15 GB will be the value to be assigned.
In addition, files stored in the service are not affected until the deadline. That is: only pictures sent from June this year will be valid.
This number is more than the number can be verified in other services: Apple’s iCloud, for example, only offers 5 GB for free.
However, for those who want to pay for more storage, the cost-effectiveness of Google Photos is quite interesting.
What are the features of each plan in Google Photos?
Just to compare: iCloud R offers 50 GB for $ 3.50 per month; 200 GB for R $ 10.90; And 2 TB for R $ 34.90.
Thus, it is worth remembering that the service is associated with Google Drive, Gmail, and other company platforms.
In addition, for 2 TB plans or more, free VPNs are offered for Android or additional storage.
Finally, another big news is that most users do not need to transfer subscription plans immediately.
Thus, according to information received from the company, 80% of the people using the service do not reach the 15 GB limit for at least 3 years.
On the other hand, by using free plans for different services simultaneously, it is possible to circumvent the need to pay for more space.
Therefore, for those using OneDrive, 35 GB of free storage will be added to all, along with iCloud in Google One.

What are stage memories and how do they work?
At the top of the screen, you can find a carousel of painted images: this is the section that Google refers to as “memories”.
