As we already reported, since June 1, the Google Photos service, which since 2015 provided everyone with unlimited cloud space for storing photos and videos, now limits free space to 15 gigabytes.
You can save photos in both original and high quality, however both options now take up space. The Android Police website has published a method that allows you to get unlimited storage in Google Photos again. However, this will likely have to fork out a bit, as you’ll need any of the older Google Pixel smartphones. If you suddenly have such a smartphone in stock, then you are in luck. Otherwise, you can still find a secondary market Google Pixel at a very affordable price.
As a reminder, Pixel smartphone owners can still upload to Google Photos any number of photos and videos in original quality without decreasing the resolution. If you have a Pixel smartphone, you will need to download the free Resilio Syn app from Google Play, which allows you to synchronize data between smartphones.
You need to launch the application on the main smartphone and open access to the folder with photos, after which you need to launch Resilio Sync on the Pixel smartphone and scan the QR code in the application running on the main smartphone. After this procedure, the Google Pixel will download photos and videos from your main smartphone and upload them to Google Photos.
It is not yet known whether Google will be able to close this “vulnerability”, if you can call it that.
