If you own a Pixel 3 or a Pixel 3 XL then you’ll have just lost a great feature of your phone, as users across the globe have lost the free unlimited original-quality photo backup feature previously offered by Google.
This allowed Pixel 3 owners to back up photos and videos shot using their Pixel devices in their original quality for free in Google Photos, without it counting towards any storage limits.
However, Google said that beyond January 31, 2022, “photos and videos backed up in Original quality will count toward your Google Account storage”. That only applies to new content though – the photos and videos you’ve previously backed up still won’t count towards your storage.
