What you need to know:

  • Google Photos is more of an android photo gallery app for smartphones but it offers a lot more than the cloud storage option. 
  • According to Google, the change is driven by the growing demand for storage.

After years of offering free unlimited storage for high definition (HD) photos and videos, Google will now start charging users for storage above the 15 GB allocated to each account.
