Google photos have been my favourite part of the Google ecosystem for a lot of years. It is also available in Apple devices such as iPhone or iPad and also has been accessible to PCs and laptops. This data backup service allowed us to automatically upload photos & videos to the cloud for free and without a limit on storage with very few obvious limitations i.e, Photos shouldn’t be greater than 16 megapixels & videos must be 1080p resolution or lower. It was one of the easiest ways people have ever found to sync data from smartphones. The iPhone users usually ditch the iCloud upgrade storage; Google photo was bliss for every user out there. Google Photos free storage is ending tomorrow. Unfortunately, ‘Google Photos’ free high-quality storage is being shut down from June 1.
But the Good news is if you are a Google Pixel owner starting from Pixel 3a, Pixel 4, Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a 5G, and Pixel 5, you don’t need to worry about any of this.
