Google left many users disappointed when it announced plans to end free Google Photos storage. Starting June 1, 2021, you’ll have to pay for a Google One subscription if your photos spill past your free 15GB Google Drive space. Thankfully, there are many Google Photos alternatives already out there. It’s just a question of if you want to jump ship or not.
With that in mind, we asked you, our readers, if you’re willing to pay for storing your media on Google Photos. Here’s how you voted in our poll.
