It̵7;s undeniable that Google Photos is still a great photo backup service. If you choose to keep using Google Photos, then of course you only have 15GB of storage if you don’t pay. But you have a lot of useful editing tools. intelligent classification and fluid sharing capabilities.
We wouldn’t be surprised if some people opted for a different service. Because there are some alternatives to Google Photos between OneDrive, Dropbox and your own server. You don’t have to be with Google if you don’t want to.
