If you back up all your images to Google Photos, you may run into a storage problem next year. Last month, Google said it would end unlimited, high-quality uploads to the service in July 2021
Most people probably don’t need 10, 20 or 30 TB of cloud storage. But if you want to upload the highest resolution videos and images, along with a digital copy of games, apps, and the sink, Google One does have a plan for you. But they come at a high cost.
Until recently, the 10 TB plan was $ 100 every month, and you would pay $ 200 and $ 300 for the 20 and 30 TB plans, respectively. But now those plans cost half, which is $ 50, $ 100, and $ 150 a month.
That’s still a lot of money (you’ll pay $ 1,800 a year for the highest plan), but a welcome change given Google’s new storage policy. The company says it will delete your data if you exceed your limit for more than two years. The price could be worth the right person.
And luckily this isn’t just a discount for new subscribers. If you already have one of the best plans, your bill will be adjusted to the latest prices. Google One offers plenty of other features too, including a VPN, so you’re not just paying for cloud storage.
Google’s new storage policy will take effect next year, so you don’t have to rush to make up your mind now. Just don’t forget the road and run out of space for your best photos.
