As far back as 2015, Google offered limitless storage for Google Photos. Google said in 2020 that limitless storage for Google Photos will stop in June 2021, due to the fact that 28 billion photographs and videos were being uploaded every week.

Unlimited Google Photos storage is coming back, but only for T-Mobile subscribers in the United States and at a fee. For those who find the new free 15GB limits a continual annoyance, we have some good news:


For $5 a month, T-Mobile users get 500GB of storage for Gmail and Google Drive, while for $10 a month, they get 2TB of storage for the two services.

According to TechRadar, starting on April 26th, T-Mobile will offer its customers a new plan for $15 per month that includes the same 2TB of cloud storage as well as unlimited high-resolution photo uploads to Google Photos.

As a result, any images you upload will be taken from the included 2TB of storage, which is a $5 price premium above Google One Premium. In contrast to the limitless Google Photos storage that may be shared with up to five family members, the primary T-Mobile account user is the only one with access to the Google One services.


How much is excessive?

A genuinely infinite Google Photographs service is definitely overkill for most people, even if it is pleasant not to worry about which photos are keepers and which aren’t.

A year’s worth of images would need to be taken at a rate of 1,600 each day in order to fill 2TB in a year. It’s safe to say that unless you’re a professional photographer (or filmmaker), you won’t be spending that money.

If you’re already utilising your Google Drive quota for other things, the math gets more difficult. Having Google Photos not suck up space in your Gmail or Drive accounts may be a welcome relief for those who are bad at emptying up their inboxes.


However, the fact that T-Mobile is selling a service that Google no longer provides is noteworthy. Can we expect other airlines to follow suit in the future? Wait and see what happens.
