Starting June 1, 2021

Any photo or video uploaded to Google Photos, compressed or not, will be counted in the 15GB default storage of every new Google account or the storage you have with your Google One subscription.

To recall, compressed "High" quality images were free to upload before.

This change will apply to all users of Google Photos on any platform like Android, iOS, and PC.

But, Google shared that all images uploaded before June 1, 2021, will not be counted. This means that only the images and videos uploaded after June 1, 2021, will start eating your Google storage.

If you are inactive on the service or over the storage limit for over two years, Google may delete your content across multiple services.

Pixel phone owners won't be able to upload unlimited original quality after June 1, 2021, but as a bonus to those who buy Google products, they can still upload unlimited "High" quality images.

Google is also offering a tool in June 2021 to let users manage its backup photos and videos and pick what you want to keep or delete. It'll highlight the dark or blurry photos as well as large videos that you may not want to keep.
