Google to scale back free online storage for photos

Thursday 12 November 2020 | 09:14 CET | News
Google is scaling back its free online storage in the Google Photos app. From June 2021, all photos will count towards the 15 GB storage limit across a customer's Google Account. Currently customers have unlimited storage for photos of less than 16MP or videos with a maximum HD quality. They can agree to allow Google to compress the files so they fall within the limit for unlimited storage.
