Google Photos, the most frequently used photo backup service on the Android front, has more than 1 billion users. The most important reason it appeals to such a large user base is that it allows free photo storage. Paid features have started to be talked about for the application, which has useful features such as editing options, family sharing, joint album.
Google Photos brings paid features
15GB of storage space provided to you when you created your Google account may not be enough. As a solution, Google One service increases your storage space for a monthly fee. This service expands your storage space in all Google services. It has been revealed with Google Photos update 5.18 that some new editing options will only be available to Google One users.
Shortly after we published this article, a reader informed us that Google Photos' Color Pop feature is locked behind a Google One paywall. I reached out to Google for confirmation but haven't heard back yet. https://t.co/99dsMWcKe1 pic.twitter.com/NOWepbpXkH— Mishaal Rahman (@MishaalRahman) November 6, 2020
As can be seen from the screenshots shared by a user, some editing options are offered exclusively to Google One users and related ads appear. The service, which previously provided the expansion of storage space, will offer additional editing options this time.
As a result of the discussion among the users, some stated that Adobe would prefer to buy the services of Adobe instead of purchasing these innovations. Currently, you may not be able to see notifications about these features in the application. Probably, we will see Google One ads soon.
If you have a large pile of photos on your phone and you like to make edits on Google Photos, paid features can make your job easier, at this point, the decision is yours.
