Recently, Google announced that it would change the Google Photos app’s policy offering free unlimited storage. From June 1, 2021, all new images and videos you will upload to Google Photos will be counted towards the 15 GB of free storage offered with every Google Account.

It’s a big move that has come as a surprise. However, the good thing is that the new policy will not impact the media files you have already stored in Google Photos. Google Photos is free until June 1, 2021, and after that, you will get only 15GB of storage.
