Know your Google Drive Storage before its FULL

Google Drive is one of the best cloud storage service providers with a 15GB limit for each account.  It consists of Gmail, Google Drive and Google Photos. In June 2021, Google made it clear that it is stopping unlimited storage of Google Photos.

What the heck? You are thinking my Google Drive storage will be full with photos and videos. Yes, but not necessarily within a short span if you have less files.

You can get extra storage for your Google products.

If you already pay for a Drive plan, you get automatically upgraded to Google One at no charge.

If you don’t have a Drive plan, you can become a Google One member to get more storage, help from experts, and extra member benefits.
