Big changes to Google account storage policy from June 1, find out about the effect on you and everything about the new policy


Google's storage policy is set to undergo a major overhaul from June 1.  The back-up file on Google Photos will now count to Google's 15GB of free storage.  Until now, photos were backed up by Google Unlimited Storage for high quality backups, which meant 15GB of storage apart from photos.

From June 1, Google will also count high quality photos and videos backed up on photos in 15GB of free storage.  Gmail, Drive, Photos and other Google services will be able to store a total of 15GB of data on one account.


 In addition, after June 1, 2021, Google may delete your data if you do not use Google for 2 consecutive years or do not upgrade after the data limit has been met for 2 years.
