Google Photos, a photo-sharing and storage service developed by Google, helps to stores unlimited photos and videos up to 16 megapixels and 1080p resolution.
Google is about to stop the offer of free unlimited storage for Google Photos from next month. All the images and videos uploaded in the app will be counted within the 15GB free cloud storage space that the search engine offers for free with every Google Account.
Although, Google has confirmed that the photos and videos uploaded before June 1, 2021, will not be a part of 15GB storage. But the real deal is that the free storage space is shared between Gmail, Google Docs, Sheets, Drives, and other Google services.
Google gives its users to purchase additional storage space as a part of the Google One subscription program.
But, if you have already paid storage for other cloud services like OneDrive, Apple iCloud, Dropbox, etc. or if you do not want to pay for additional cloud storage space, then Google is also giving users the option to download all the data stored in Google Photos and store them on your local drives.
