- Google One is partnering with T-Mobile and the customers will have access to Unlimited Google Photos backup.
- The new 2TB option will enable the users to share the storage with around five additional people.
- The growing demand for storage was responsible for restricting the access to unlimited storage and urging the customers to upgrade to Google one.
Last year, T-Mobile and Google reported that they were working together on RCS, Pixel, and YouTube TV. Google One is partnering with T-Mobile and the customers will be able to pay $15 per month to access Unlimited Google Photos backup.
T-Mobile customers can currently choose between:
- 500GB Google One storage plan for $5 per month
- 2TB Google One storage plan for $10 per month
Soon, the T-Mobile customer will have the access to a 2TB option that can be used for Gmail and Google Drive with an additional “Unlimited Google Photos” backup for images and videos.
T-Mobile offering Google one perks
Currently, the ability for storing unlimited photos and videos is only reserved for the primary account holder but the 2TB can be shared with around five additional people.
The users will also get access to Google One perks like phone restore/backup with advanced Google Photos editing tools, the VPN, and access to extended trials of YouTube Premium, Stadia, etc.
Google Pixel with the same perks
The Pixel from 2016 offered the same perk of unlimited storage forever. With the launch of Pixel 2 and 3, Google added a 3-year end date on the perk, which is restricted to a compressed—but unlimited—starting on Pixel 3a in May of 2019. But with the launch of Pixel 4a 5G and 5, the unlimited perk was ended entirely for the pixel phones.
In June 2021 Google Photos ended the unlimited backup at the reduced quality. It only allows 15 GB of free storage included with every Google Account. The growing demand for storage was responsible for this move and the company urged the people to upgrade to Google One for additional storage benefits.
