However, it is still offering free storage space for images and videos but not for some video formats that Google doesn’t support. Google announced that now if any unsupported video is uploaded on Google Photos then that storage space will be consumed. To free up this consumed space, user has to delete the video. Although, before deleting the video, users can download it, which will be saved on phone’s memory.
Also, Google Photos will play your video in the app only when it is:
- At least 1 second long.
- The right video file types such as: .mpg, .mod, .mmv, .tod, .wmv, .asf, .avi, .divx, .mov, .m4v, .3gp, .3g2, .mp4, .m2t, .m2ts, .mts and .mkv files.
