Google Photos is a cloud storage service from Google, which allows users to store photos in the cloud and access them from any device from anywhere through an Internet connection. For general users, Google offers 15 GB of free cloud storage that is also shared by other Google services like Gmail and Google Drive.

Many times, free cloud storage users face the problem of running out of storage, which makes it difficult for other Google services to work. A simpler and easier solution is to buy additional cloud storage and continue to use different services, but if you are not someone who regularly stores photos in the cloud or if you have access to free storage from other cloud service providers like Microsoft and Amazon , then you can download all your photos and transfer them to another cloud storage.
