How to Get Google Photos Unlimited Storage [updated 2020]

Who doesn’t want to keep memories saved whether in the form of photos or videos? Photos will always have a special corner in our hearts. We often take photos whether to be a meetup, festival, candid moments, etc. and everything remains stored in our phone memory.

The number of photos taken by an average user per day varies on various aspects but the one thing I am pretty sure that quantity has been drastically increased compared to previous. with the increased demand for photos, the demand for the device storage has also increased.

The phone comes with limited storage so you can either transfer your photos to some external drive or can save it on cloud storage. However, everyone can’t afford to have an external drive which eventually shifts us to the latter option (i.e cloud storage). Cloud services like Google Drive, Onedrive, Dropbox, Mediafire, Jio cloud etc. provide limited free storage and for more storage extra money is charged.
