Admit it, sooner or later your mobile phone will end up flooded with images, videos and audios that will end up blowing up the huge space that was previously available. But before you are forced to have to do a thorough cleaning of your mobile, we can use a tool that will come in handy for this type of problem.
That tool is none other than Google Photos, which as some may already know, offers unlimited cloud storage . Unlimited? Yes, exactly, unlimited. A perfect option to dump all kinds of videos and images as we free up space.
Of course, there is a small but: the files are automatically compressed losing a certain quality . Actually, there is also another but, and that is that Google Photos does not allow unlimited storage on iPhone.
If this has sounded like glory to you, stay a little longer with us and we will tell you how to free up space on your mobile thanks to Google Photos . Let's go there!
Free up space with Google Photos
To be able to make use of the infinite storage capacities in Google Photos, you must first have a Google account set up from your mobile. Once you've set up your account, backups are activated automatically, so there's little else left to do here.
The next step will be to establish the quality with which you want to save your videos and images. Why? Well, as we mentioned above, the unlimited storage options of Google Photos are only available if we reduce the quality of the files .
To configure the quality of our photos, we must go to Settings> Backup> Image quality> High Quality. As you can see, this option already tells us that we will have unlimited storage .
Another issue to take into account is that Google Photos saves by default only those images that are taken with the mobile camera , but not from other applications. To change it we must return to Settings> Backup> Folders of the device with backup.
At this last point, we can freely choose from which folders we want Google Photos to automatically save our captures.
