It is a fact that since June 1, the accounts of Google Photos they will no longer have unlimited space and will have a limit of 15 Gigabytes (GB) of storage; For this reason, this application announced the launch of a new tool, which will help us manage the available space in the best way possible to eliminate blurry photos, videos that take up a lot of space and screenshots.
If you have a Google Pixel mobile device or purchase one of the plans to get more storage in Google Photos, these changes will not affect you from June 1. However, in order to help those who do not meet the aforementioned requirements, Google created a tool that will be very useful to manage the available space.
According to him Google blog, to access this tool we must first open Google photos and then go to the menu “Manage storage”, here we will see the subtitle “Review and Delete” and below this there will be three options: “Large Photos” (Large Photos), “Blurry Photos” (Blurry Photos) and Screenshots (Captures of screen).
Likewise, on the right side of these 3 options we will verify the space they occupy in Google Photos and at the top the application will provide us with a guide to occupy all the storage. As we see in the image it says “About 3 years storage left”, in Spanish it means “There are about 3 years of storage left”.
Finally, on your web portal, Google made it clear that the high quality images or videos that are uploaded before June 1, will not apply or affect the 15 GB that the company will provide us for free from the date of changes.
HOW TO OBSERVE HOW MUCH SPACE I HAVE
Through the Google website called Storge, we will be able to verify the total availability that we have left of the storage. In addition, it details the amount of photos and video occupied in megabyte (MB) or Gigabyte (GB), as well as the space occupied in Google Drive, Gmail and the total space that we have used to date.
