Google Photos has announced the end of their free unlimited storage to all Google account users.
In a blog post Google Photos said from 1 June the unlimited storage will be replaced with a 15GB maximum limit for every Google account.
The decision follows the sporadic growth in Google Photos app storage usage by Android and iPhone users, making it increasingly expensive for cloud storage expansion by Google.
The company also aims at encouraging user subscription to the paid storage service- Google One, which offers users a monthly payment plan from $2 for 100GB storage and additional features like Google store discounts.
Existing users will still have access to their past photos and their current photo storage will not be counted as part of the proposed 15GB limit.
Hence users are advised to backup any existing pictures between now and June 1st to take advantage of the extra storage space available to them within this grace period.
