T-Mobile’s 2TB Google One plan includes unlimited Google Photos backups

T-Mobile is introducing a new Google One subscription option for its customers that revives Google’s unlimited photo storage backup service…for a price, of course. For $15 a month, it includes 2TB of cloud storage, all the benefits of a Google One subscription, and unlimited original-resolution photo and video backups to Google Photos.

When Google ended its free photo storage sauce in 2021, a weary world sighed and searched for new storage options. Sure, the included 15GB of free storage would be enough for a lot of people, but those of us who take a lot of photos and like the “set it and forget it” nature of unlimited Google Photos backup should buy a paid Google. Membership sooner or later.

Google One subscriptions start at $2 per month for 100GB of cloud storage and go up to $10 per month for 2TB (plus a few other perks, like a VPN and 10% credit on Google Store purchases ). This new tier – open only to T-Mobile customers – is the most expensive yet, but it’s the only one to include unlimited Google Photos backups in its benefits.

For many people, 2TB would probably be more than enough photo storage on its own, but you can share that 2TB cloud storage allowance with up to five other people. The Google Photos benefit, however, only applies to the T-Mobile account manager — not everyone on your plan. The new storage plan will be available on Tuesday, April 26.
