All about Google Photos and its Alternatives!

June 01, 2021

From June 1, any more images being backed up by Photos will count against your 15GB Google Drive/Mail storage.

Google photos are so popular amongst all Google users. It has a photo editing tool, video correction tool, batch photo processing, even AI-based auto creations.

But sadly, Google Announced that their free High-Quality Unlimited upload would end on 31st May 2021! Yes, your guesses are right. Today is the end of Free High-Quality Photos Uploads!

But there is a lot thing you need to know (including Pixel Phone Users):

  • Everyone, including non-Pixel owners: Anything you uploaded for free before June 1st, 2021, won’t count against your 15GB quota.
  • Pixel 3A, Pixel 4, Pixel 4A, Pixel 5: You also still get unlimited free “Storage saver,” aka “High quality” images going forward, but not “Original quality.”
  • Pixel 3: You still get unlimited free “Original quality” photos and videos if you upload them before January 1st, 2022, after which you get unlimited “Storage saver” in the future.
  • Pixel 2: You got (past tense) unlimited free “Original quality” photos and videos if you uploaded them before January 16th, 2021, and you get unlimited “Storage saver” in the future.
  • Pixel (2016): You get unlimited free “Original quality” photos and videos until your phone kicks the bucket.

Future Google phones won’t have these perks: existing Pixels will be the last to come with free unlimited “High quality” uploads, Google confirmed to The Verge in November.
