After a long notice, the free photo and video storage space of Google Photos has finally officially terminated today (June 1). From now on, all uploaded photos and videos will be counted in the 15GB space in the internal account, and other services in the Google account. Including Gmail, Google Drive, etc. sharing.

If you want to continue to use it, there are many different measures you can do first. The first is to regularly clean up the content in Google Photos, such as screenshots, blurry, and photos and videos taken by mistake. This can all be done with the newly added tools of Google. Another thing is that you can pay a small amount of money. The monthly fee for Google One starts at HK$15, and there is an extra 100GB of space to use, and there will be expert support, family sharing and other user discounts, up to 2TB.

If you really don’t want to rely on Google, there are other cloud storage services, such as Dropbox, Flickr, etc., and you can even choose to build your own NAS!
