Many of you probably don’t know, but Google promised a few years ago that it will allow Google Photos users upload as many photos and videos as they wish, assuming they would ok with the fact that the service is going to compress all their media files.
Now it appears that Google has backtracked on its original promise and added a note on its support site that says videos uploaded after December 6 will take up storage space. This means Google Photos users will no longer be able to upload certain types of files without paying any fees.
As AndroidPolice points out, here are the video formats that you won’t be able to upload on Google Photos starting December 6: .mpg, .mod, .mmv, .tod, .wmv, .asf, .avi, .divx, .mov, .m4v, .3gp, .3g2, .mp4, .m2t, .m2ts, .mts, and .mkv.
Of course, that doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to store these unsupported video formats on your Google Photos accounts, it’s just that they’re not part of the free storage deal any longer.
