Unlimited Google Photos will be deprived even of owners of new Pixel smartphones
Future Pixel devices will be deprived of unlimited space in Google Photos.
Google recently announced that the company will stop providing unlimited storage space for Google Photos starting June 1, 2021. Although this innovation will not affect existing Pixel devices, it became known that the company's future phones will be deprived of this bonus.
Google has confirmed to Android Police and Android Central that future Google Pixel smartphones will not get unlimited space in Google Photos. In other words, they will not be able to store photos and videos in high quality (not in the original). This will deprive the new Google Pixel smartphones of an advantage over other devices from other companies.
For many years, Google has provided the Google Photos service for everyone free of charge, if the photos were uploaded not in their original quality, but compressed to high quality. However, in most cases, the quality of the materials remains very high.
Now users will have access to only 15 GB of space, and for additional space, they will have to pay: 100 GB for ₹130 per month or ₹1300 per year, 200 GB for ₹210 per month or ₹2100 per year, 2 TB for ₹650 per month or ₹6500 per year. Previously uploaded content will not be affected by this change.
If you run out of free 15 GB, Google will regularly remind you to purchase additional space. If you leave your full storage unattended for 24 months, Google can delete some of the content itself.
