One of the main advantages of the first generations of Google Pixel smartphones was the ability to store unlimited photos and videos in Google Photos (Google Photos) in original quality. However, since yesterday, January 16, 2021, Google has stripped this advantage of the Pixel 2 smartphones.
Now Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL users will have to either choose free storage of photos in “High quality”, but still with compression, or use “Original quality”, but already within the framework of a paid Google One subscription.
The Pixel 3 are now the last smartphones for which Google offers unlimited photo storage in original quality. For them, the “attraction of unheard of generosity” will last until January 31, 2022.
