Google Photos service is changing from June 1

Google Photos was launched about five years ago. Here, users can store their important photos. Speaking of the present, Google Photos has more than 4 trillion photos stored. Every week 28 billion new photos and videos are uploaded on this platform. But now the company is going to change its storage policy soon.

An important update regarding the storage policy of Google Photos has been released by the company. Under this new update, from June 1, 2021, any new photos and videos you upload will be counted only in the 15 GB storage that is made available to the users or which users purchase under the Google One member.

storage of your Google photos account

The storage of your Google account is shared on your Drive, Gmail and Photos. The company says that this change will also help them to keep pace with the increasing demand for storage. We are also committed to our decision not to use Google Photos information for advertising purposes. We know that this is a big innings, and it may surprise the users. In such a situation, we are already telling you about this and want to give you resources to make it easier.

The new policy will not be applicable on existing high-quality photos: Any photos or videos uploaded by the user before June 1 2021, on high-resolution will not be included in the free storage of 15 GB free. This simply means that any photos and videos that were uploaded before June 1 2021, will be kept outside the 15 GB limit and will be considered free.

Sync and backup

You can sync and backup your backup quality at any time by going to the Photos app. In such a situation, if you backup the photos to their original quality, then this change of the company will not affect you.

If you want to understand how this change can affect you, a personal estimate can be made for how long you can run your storage. This estimate takes into account the number of times photos, videos and other content is backed up to your Google Account.

In June 2021, you will be able to access a new free tool in the Photos app to easily access your backup photos and videos. This tool will help you review the memory you want to keep. You will also surf the ones you want to delete.

Photos app paid plan

Under an offer, the company has given 100 GB of data for one month, for which users will be able to get Rs 45 instead of Rs 130. However, from next month you will have to pay 130 rupees per month only. In addition, if you want to take an annual plan, then you have to pay 1300 per year.

At the same time, you can take 200 GB for Rs 210 per month and Rs 2,100 for an annual fee. Also, 2 TB of storage will be made available at a fee of Rs 650 per month and Rs 6,500 per year.
