Google announced it will phase out its unlimited storage on Google Photos effective June 1, 2021. Anything uploaded will count toward the new 15 GB limit imposed on Google accounts that already include files from other services such as Gmail and Google Drive.  After hitting the limit Google Photo users will have to pay for extra space through the Company’s Google One Cloud Service which starts at $1.99 per month for 100GB storage.

 

Many users are unhappy with this as they thought it Google Photos would be around forever,
