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.
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.

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.

Google music has ended, YouTube ads are frustratingly reuned the viewing experience and now Photos. Policymakers behind the Google are going to destroy the company.
Android--Master, 13 Nov 2020One can have a backup of physical storage on another physical storage.
Now don't tell m... moreDo you realize the more nonsense you say it will make you look even more s+up!d? let me explain why.
In the previous comments you didn't know that iPhone users can transfer files with cheap lightning OTG cables and you also made false statements about encryption.
And you also still don't understand why cloud storage can be really useful no matter how much physical storage you use, all of that storage will be exposed to unexpected events from factory defects, human error and disasters whether caused by humans or nature and cloud storage gives us more protection incase that happens.
Me invested in cheap cards? Do you think 128GB Lexar Professional 2000x UHS-II Card and 128GB Sony SF-G Series TOUGH caeds that i use for the cameras is my studio is cheap?
I also use 128GB Lexar V60 microSD for my Xperia 5 II.
Even with the previous explanation you still don't know that Lightning OTG flash drive like iXpand has a male USB A connector that you can use to connect on any devices with female USB A port OMG how s+up!d you can be?
If you want to connect to the multiple devices that you mention you'll need at least 2 different cable because the OTG cable only has female USB A connector that allows it to connect to a device like flash drive.
But if you want to connect you phone to external drives or any device with female port you'll need data/charging cable.
iPhone users can do the same thing you mention they just need a cheap charging cable or OTG cable because almost every single lightning cable comes with female or male usb connector.
Let me show you the differences between your solution and mine for those who use a phone without sd card slot.
For your solution anyone need to carry around OTG cable and external storage like flash drive.
My solution just bring a OTG flash drive there's no need for another extra cable, dongle or adapter.
OTG flash drive available with lightning, microUSB or USB C connector most of them also has male USB A connector so you can connect it to any device with female connector.
All big tech companies are evil. Don't trust any of them. Of course, Google already has too much info about us and is acting like Big Brother no different than Apple, Amazon, and Facebook. We got Twitter censoring Republicans. We got YouTube owned by Google deleting our comments.
They're watching us and then trying to sway how we think to a direction that makes them rich. Google was my favorite before but now I just stick to Sony and Nike products. And those two are evil especially the latter. I only like them for their PlayStations and Air Jordans.
