If you're an avid Google Photos user, this week certainly wasn't a great one. On November 11, Google announced that it's getting rid of free unlimited backups as of June 2021. Once that time comes, any and all files you upload to Google Photos will count towards your regular storage quota.

All of the photos you have backed up already are just fine, and if you want to keep taking advantage of the free unlimited space right up until June 1, you can do that too. Even so, there's no denying this is a massive change from the Google Photos experience we've been used to for the past few years.

You don't have to spend a lot of money to get a ton of storage once you hit the new 15GB cap in Google Photos. It's one of those rare things that is worth more than the asking price.
