Starting June 1, 2021, Google is set to make unlimited free storage for high-quality photos and videos go away and everything will be counted against the free 15GB storage offered by Google with every Google account. Unless you get the additional storage space by subscribing to Google One service, there’s a definite chance that the free 15GB will get over soon as it is being shared with other Google services as well such as Gmail, Drive, documents, etc.
Google says that it will take users years to fill up the free 15GB storage space and if you are wondering how much time you have left with your existing storage space, Google has built a handy tool right into the Google Account that lets users check the time left with the free storage space in years/month. Read to know how to access the tool and use it.
