Google partners with T-Mobile to provide a Google One plan with unlimited Google Photos storage.
Google used to provide unlimited storage for Google Photos users before ending its unlimited option for all but Pixel owners. Since the end of unlimited storage, Google has offered several different Google One storage tiers, with an option exceeding 2TB for $9.99 per month or $99 for a year. T-Mobile is now bringing back unlimited photo storage for its customers, whether or not they use a Pixel phone. The new plan will offer 2TB of cloud storage for Gmail and Drive, as well as unlimited storage for photos and videos, for $15 per month.
T-Mobile customers aren’t locked into a single option. Customers can opt for a 500GB plan for $5 per month, a 2TB plan for $10 per month, or 2TB plus unlimited Google Photos for $15 per month. In many ways, the two lower tier plans are similar to Google’s base options, except the lowest tier comes with 500GB instead of the 100 or 200GB provided by Google’s lower tiers. All three plans include the ability to use extended trials for YouTube Premium, Stadia, and other Google services. Like Google’s 2TB plan, T-Mobile’s mid-range and high-end tiers come with Google’s VPN service, along with the ability to share the 2TB of storage with up to five other people. The unlimited plan also allows users to store their photos and videos at full resolution, rather than reducing the quality to save space.

For a limited time, all three plans are available with a 30-day free trial.
Overall, T-Mobile’s options seem like a good deal for most customers. Even the lower and mid-tier plans offer more storage or features than Google’s vanilla plans, while remaining the same price. The unlimited plan is a great option for customers who miss or need the old unlimited Google Photos. The only caveat, of course, is that the unlimited plan is a T-Mobile exclusive.
