Google Photos Stops Free Unlimited Storage for Unsupported Videos

As we know Google has been letting us enjoy its unlimited free storage on Google Photos service. A few years ago Google promised that it is going to allow unlimited storage for its Google Photos users for uploading photos and videos as many as they want. But now, the services have been updated and Google has added a note on its support site that the videos that are uploaded after 6th of December will take up storage space and the users need to pay a fee for uploading certain types of videos.

Generally, the photos and videos that are uploaded on Google Photos get compressed but from now, few formats need to pay to Google to be uploaded to Google Photos. According to the support site of the Tech Giant, the video formats that are not going to supported are 3g2, .mp4, .m2t, .m2ts, .mts, and .mkv  .mpg, .mod, .mmv, .tod, .wmv, .asf, .avi, .divx, .mov, .m4v, .3gp,

If the users can’t play Video with Google Photo, they have to review them by downloading it or deleting it. The user can go to the Google photos website and go to the settings and tap on Unsupported videos. Now select all the videos that you want to download or delete. These will be deleted from Google Photos but you can still access from the device if you have the downloaded copy.

The videos that play in Google Photos are a right type like .mp4, .mod, or .mmv. Furthermore, the video should be at least one-second long. Do you upload videos to Google Photos?
