Signing off – Goodbye to Google photos 

I have been detailing in my earlier articles that I have been thinking to move away from Google photos due to its recent notifications about storage quota counting against the account limit for photos and users had to pay for added storage options. With no options left, I had to make hard decision to move away from Google photos for following reasons. 
  • Long term practical option: the major tech giants have decided to charge users for storing their data online. With no options left, we have found affordable online cloud storage choice and Google has exorbitant pricing for its storage plan. Additionally, I also had to look out for reliable online cloud storage choice for my family as well. Google offers only extremely limited storage option for family sharing and the prices were exceeding my budget. OneDrive offers the lowest pricing per GB and has dedicated 1 TB storage options for family members. These attractive storage plan seems to be the most practical in long term for its pricing and access to office suite of apps. 
  • Added benefits: Google online cloud storage prices were less compared to Apple but does not offer any added benefits with storage plan and are limited only individual GMAIL account. However, with OneDrive storage plan, users can also get access to its exclusive office apps and can additionally activate those office applications in individual devices. 
With above listed reasons, the time has come for me to bid goodbye to Google photo as my photo’s backup and online storage choice. For more such articles, please feel free to check out the G R TEAM SITES.
