Google won’t allow you to upload unlimited photos for free after June 2021
Inactivity on Google Photos for over two years or excess uploads might result in Google deleting your content over.
One of Google photos’ most used features was that it allowed the user to upload unlimited photos and videos, provided that they were compressed. However, Google plans to end this after June 2021, as announced by the technology company in a blog post recently.
After June 2021, your Google account will have a default upload limit of 15 GB. Previously, the limitation only applied on the photos in uncompressed quality; and did not pertain to the upload of high-quality compressed images. Nevertheless, from June next year, every photo and video will fall in it.
It is worth noting that Google will only execute the implemented changes on the data uploaded after June 2021. Any Google photos uploaded before that date won’t be counted.
After the June 1st, 2021, the upload limit of 15 GB will be applicable and to extend your limit, you will have to subscribe to Google One services and separately pay for it.
However, inactivity on Google Photos for over two years or excess uploads might result in Google deleting your content over.
For Pixel phone users, there is good news as well. The phone users will continue uploading high-quality images limitlessly for years.
