How to get unlimited storage on Google Photos
Storage on smartphones has been a big issue for users especially with smartphone camera getting better day-by-day as they can capture high-resolution images and videos which enhances their size. Videos too have come a long way as most of the modern smartphones today are capable of capturing high-resolution videos such as 4K or full HD which consumes a lot of storage space on the smartphone.

However, most of the cloud storage service providers only provide a limited amount of storage for free as after that users have to pay to buy additional space. Considering all the limitations and restrictions, there’s one way around that might help users to back up all their images and videos.

Google Photos is perhaps the right answer to this as Google allows users to keep their images and videos stored over the cloud if the users willing to upload them in ‘High-resolution’ format which compresses the photos to the 16MP resolution which is even more than most of the flagship smartphones. But, the real question is how to get unlimited storage. Follow our step-by-step guide.
