Anonim, 04 Mar 2021By the way...what about those photos I have backed up in high quality...should I back them all... morePreviously, only images uploaded in the uncompressed 'Original' quality preset would be counted towards your storage space, while images uploaded in the compressed 'High' quality preset were free. From June 1, all images will be treated as equal.

othman, 20 Jan 2021wwwwwhhhhyyyyyyy?????? Outrageous isn't it. Why can't they just keep giving us free stuff.
And that's why I bought a cheap pixel 2 off eBay just to upload photos and videos unlimited still, captured from my other devices. Easy!
Mibo, 15 Jan 2021So we will lose our recent photos that we uploaded many years ago?If I am reading this correctly your current uploads are stored for free and will remain free, as will any others you upload before 01 June 2021. After that whatever you upload thenceforth will count as part of your online storage - whatever kind of account you have (i.e. 15GB free account, 100GB Drive account @ 1.99/month; 200GB Drive @ 2.99/month etc, etc) but the prior uploads will remain available and freely stored.
So we will lose our recent photos that we uploaded many years ago?
Am I going to lose all my pictures
How to understand this? Can I keep Gigabytes of Videos or not? Or only with Pixel phone? (few accounts there?)
Never trust Google, same as Google reader.
When something is good they take it away.
It was too good to last forever. Think about it as a free trial that is soon to be over. Now you have to decide what to do next.
Those who are subscribed to Amazon Prime and do not plan to cancel their subscription should move their as they're getting a generous storage capacity.
Google is offering 15 GB for free, which is a lot of space for photos, but if you have too many videos and high-quality photos that you need access to 24/7, you need to consider a premium cloud service. They are not charging much for 100 GB, it's just $20 per year. Do you really need more than 100 GB? You gotta pay for it, and Google's prices are fair to be honest. Nobody is offering free unlimited, forget about the past. You can move your old stuff to a PC or something, just keep 15 GB of the recent and important stuff, that's free forever. Google also won't delete the stuff already backed up, so that's a nice thing. Back up your stuff now while you can.
If you have a Huawei phone and you need something cheaper than $20, you could get 50 GB from Huawei Cloud, it's very cheap (less than $12 per year). Samung is offering similar price for their 50 GB on their phones, but it seems they're going to cancel this service soon, which is a shame.
Can't afford that? Nothing is free, but you could invest in SD cards if your phone supports it (and your future phones), you can have up to 1TB on the go, with a one time purchase. If you are an advanced user with a desktop PC, you could make your own private cloud and sync your files to it. It's not a very popular thing anymore but I used to do this in the past. The PC of course has to be connected to the internet all the time. I've seen a great modern sync solution that would work as good or close to Google Photos.
Time to buy sd cards again
Rajput, 14 Nov 2020Google music has ended, YouTube ads are frustratingly reuned the viewing experience and now Ph... moreYep those google ad are very annoying. especially the ones that blast your ears and give you super bright white screen to blind you
Don't undersatnd the logic irritating your customer to spend £9.99 a month just to stop getting adverts? Not everyone who pays for youtube does so for the other features in my opinon
What if say your daily driver is a different phone but you have an old pixel logged in to your Google Photos?
Google offers free unlimited services to get users, when all users are already using it and there is no more competition, Google starts to monopolize. I think this is not just politics, but this is Google's desire to monopolize cloud services. Well done Google, well done.

Anonymous, 13 Nov 2020One can always partition the internal storage like you do on Windows. Never heard of such thing. Can you kindly elaborate a bit or mention any tutorial link? Thanks in advance.
