Starting June 1, Google Docs, Sheets, or Slides files will be deducted from the free 15 GB Google One. Once this level is exceeded, please proceed to checkout.
Last Wednesday, Google took stock of the upcoming news for its online storage offering. In addition to discontinuing free hosting for high-quality snapshots on Google Photos, the company also announced that Google Docs, Google Sheets, and Google Slides files will be deducted from your storage starting next year.
In a blog post, the company announced that starting June 1, 2021, all new documents created on Google Drive would be deducted from the hosting offered by Google. This was not the case until now as users had to pay for files uploaded to Google’s cloud platform, but files created directly with Google tools were not under this limit. .
Starting June 1, all new documents, spreadsheets, presentations, drawings, forms and Jamboard files will be deducted from your free allocated storage of 15 GB or your storage space provided through Google One. Files already created on these products are not counted from storage unless they are changed on or after June 1.
All files are counted
On a dedicated support page, Google goes one step further in clarifying which files will be deducted from Google Drive storage. Until now, the company only counted the external files hosted there, such as PDFs, images or videos. From now on this applies to everyone “files created or modified in collaboration creation applications».
Therefore, if the quota is exceeded, users will have to delete Google Drive files or subscribe to a paid storage offer on Google One. It is possible to upgrade to 100 GB (19.99 euros per year), 200 GB (29.99 euros per year) or 2 TB (99.99 euros per year).
