From Google

We launched Google Photos more than five years ago and since then, it’s become more than just an app to manage your photos. It’s become a place you go when you feel nostalgic and want to reminisce. Today, Google Photos is the home for more than 4 trillion photos and videos, including yours, and a remarkable 28 billion new photos and videos are uploaded every week. In order to welcome even more of your memories and build Google Photos for the future, we are announcing a change to our storage policy.

  • Starting June 1, 2021, all new photos and videos backed up in High quality will count toward the free 15 GB of storage that comes with your Google Account or any additional storage you may have purchased, the same way other Google services like Google Drive and Gmail already do.
  • All photos and videos you back up in High quality before June 1, 2021 are exempt from this change and will not count toward your Google Account storage. This includes all of your existing content uploaded in High quality.
  • We don’t take this decision lightly and we acknowledge that this is a big shift, so wanted to let you know well in advance and give you resources to help you navigate this change.
  • Do I need to do anything right away?
    No, you can continue to use Google Photos to back up your photos and videos. After June 1, 2021 we will reach out and send you reminders when you are nearing your storage limit. Most users will have years before they need to take action.
  • When will I reach my free 15 GB of storage?
    We created a personalised estimate that shows how much time you have until you reach your quota. This estimate takes into account how frequently you back up photos, videos and other content to your Google Account.
  • What can I do to manage my storage?
    On June 1, 2021, we will be launching a new storage management tool which will help you easily find and delete dark, blurry, and otherwise unwanted content. You can also purchase more storage with Google One where available.

Had the marlin for like three years, yet in all those times i just kept thinking about uploading my entire photo collection of like 58 gigs (along with video of course) to Google photos, but never actually did. I hate myself.

Probably it’s better that we/ I now subscribe to their paid subscription anyway. But i still don’t understand. The basic plan of 130 PM says to provide 100 gigs. Is that 100 GB storage per month, or what? Also, what if i subscribe for one month, upload 100 gigs data and then discontinue? So many confusions.

Bro its 130/p.m or rs 1300 if paid yearly in which we get 100 gb storage we can also share the plan with 4 or 5 family members…every member gets 15 gb personal storage then after that the 100 gb shared storage gets filled…regarding your doubt about subscription cancelation it is a paid service so whenever you unsubscribe the service..it gets cancelled and the default 15 gb free storage gets activated.
