When I went to check my account at Google, this was the first screen I saw.
I currently have the 80 GB storage plan for $20 annually. Notice it says this plan is no longer available. I almost didn’t read further and was about to select the 100 GB plan when I decided to do what I should have done in the first place and read further.
Clicking on the “learn more” link brought me to this page showing the old vs. the new storage plans. The old pricing plans are annual and the new ones are all monthly.
Not to bore you with all the screen prints…another page listed the smallest plan now available is 25 GB for $2.49 monthly. That is more than I pay now for the 80 GB plan.
If you slog your way through all the new plan information, you will eventually see where you can keep your old plan but there are conditions. You can read them below. It’s a good thing I checked my account info as my credit card has a new expiration date and I had not updated it. According to the new rules, if you make any changes to your storage plan OR if payment information is not up to date, you lose your old plan.
So, just a heads up. If you use Google for storing your photos, make sure you update your account when it comes time for renewal. If you only upload small sized photos, you may even be fine with the free storage. If you have a purchased plan, just remember, you don’t have to change just because your plan is no longer available if you follow the rules. Just be aware that the plans are changing and do your research to find the plan that is right for you.
