Posted 16th Jun
Someone posted this a few weeks back and unfortunately i wasn't eligible. Decided to randomly check today and i was eligible this time around so i snapped it up.

£9.48 for the first year for 100 GB of cloud storage Great for backing up important photos from your devices or sharing your photos from your holidays.
£1.59 usually so a great deal to get started.

Likely to be account specific unfortunately but worth checking if you are interested!

Are they going to use my meta data and use my pics for facial recognition?


If you are concerned about that, then you were never taking up this offer in the first place.
Still not eligible unfort
Also download "Google Rewards". Quick 10 second surveys a few times a month gives enough free credit to cover my Google Drive subscription. Seems to be the same questions repeated quite often but nothing too personal

I think you must have purchased something before from Google to get some discount or offer

That’s correct I have been using since 2013 until now never paid a penny. In this case are they going to start charging ????

So, you're publish a new deal now and expect us to be happy that you're eligible this time. I wish I could vote cold twice, these account specific deals sucks.
Full price for.

Had a pixel 2. As soon as I moved away from the pixel my free unlimited was gone. Had to delete quite a bit to bring me back to the 15gb.
I have been with google before they were in the beta stage of there email and you had to be recommended so a long time also do the Google Rewards but still the full price for me.

Just knock it down to the free high quality which is unlimited.
Once I log in I see this offer, only problem to me is....it’s only for 6 months then it goes back to the usual price!41113508-fQ4EH.jpg
Really random it seems who gets access to this. As mentioned i was seeing the full price just a week or 2 ago and now see the 79p offer for 12 months. I'd say defo check back next week or so if you are indeed interested.

Didn't work for me either, thanks for posting though
Doubles in price after 12 months though!

@Redtraveller1

Are you guys uploading in 'high quality' or original? High quality is available for everyone for free

Since the snobby people who replied to you didn't actually answer your question: yes, they will scan your images and use the metadata. If it's privacy you want, storing your photos with Google is absolutely not the way to go. iCloud is the best option I can think of in that case, since Apple won't be scanning your images as they aren't building facial recognition software nor are they an advertising-based company. Much less convenient than Google photos, but that's the additional cost of privacy.

Thanks much appreciate it.

We've got your backup
Back up unlimited photos and videos for free, up to 16MP and 1080p HD. Access them from any phone, tablet, or computer on photos.google.com – your photos will be safe, secure, and always with you.

Link is before you sign in. Up to 16mb pics or 1080hd photo, which would be more than adequate for most, if you're taking mega mb photos you are more likely to be a photographer so would be storing them another way

Eh?
Why did you delete stuff?
They're not tagged to count against your regular 15GB storage so you should have been fine.

Also you should use their "takeout" service which allows you to download in bulk all of the stuff you've uploaded to Google: photos, emails, location data etc.
I have been using & paying nothing for years?

Check the size of your photos being uploaded. If you're happy with the free quality then thats fine. For £9 a year id prefer to have the higher res photos which to me are priceless.

Ok thank you I will, didn’t realise thank you for clearing up my query
Managed to get an offer for 59p a month for 12 months, be rude not to at that price. I’m assuming that once it runs out / I drop the subscription the data, photos emails etc. just becomes read only, and you revert to the 15GB standard offering? And I can then bulk transfer whatever is > 15GB onto a local hard drive and/or some other cloud subscription service?
Couldn't see deal before but if you go via the photos app and then click on the coloured circle to access your account info there is a note about Google one and the offer is then shown when you click it
For me it's showing offer for only 6 months
Still seems to be an awful lot of confusion around this. Google offer two options, either high quality or Original

High quality: (Totally Free)

  • Unlimited free storage
  • Photos are compressed to save space. If a photo is larger than 16 MP, it will be resized to 16 MP.
  • Videos higher than 1080p will be resized to high-definition 1080p. A video with 1080p or less will look close to the original.

Original quality: (Paid after free allowance)

  • Limited free storage (15GB, your dirve and gmail space also counts towards this figure)
  • All photos and videos are stored in the same resolution that you took them.
  • Recommended for photos that have more than 16MP and videos with more than 1080p.

those saying "its free for me" are likely on the free tier (High Quality) or are on Original but just not using all the free space they get.
