In the future, Google Pixel phones would not have the advantage of “unlimited storage” on Google Images that previous Pixel handsets had. The organisation has clarified to many outlets that the advantage of saving Google Images with unrestricted original quality pictures and videos will not be expanded to future Pixel phones. This suggests all current Pixel phones, and the ‘ones sold right now’ will be the last to benefit from the unrestricted storage of Google Images in a high-quality environment.
The tech giant stated to Android Police and The Verge that even at high performance, upcoming Pixel phones would not have unlimited free Google Images backup. Present Pixel phones will have the option of ‘unrestricted capacity’ limited to high quality after the June 1 deadline, but may not store unlimited images and videos at the initial file size. The Android Police report says that upcoming Pixel handsets will not be equipped with this ‘high-quality’ alternative that current Pixels have.
As with the move, Google is ending the free unrestricted value of Google Images storage and is looking to start charging your photos and videos for the storage space. This move will take place on the 1st of June 2021.
15 GB of free disc space will continue to be provided by Google. If the limit is over, Google tries to pressure users to get up to 30 TB of space for a paying Google One account that offers cloud storage for Google Images, along with Google Drive and Gmail. Not all images or videos posted before June 1 in ‘high quality’ will count against the 15 GB limit.
Google states in its blog post that all the pixels sold right now are excluded from the updates.’ But as stated, users would be able to upload high-quality images and videos from their handsets, but will not be able to use unrestricted storage in their original file size for their material. In addition, Google has also warned users that data from dormant accounts that have not been signed in for at least two years will be deleted.
