According to Google, “the storage management tool surfaces photos or videos you might want to delete like blurry photos, screenshots and large videos so you can get the most out of your storage.” To use the tool users should click on their account icon on the top right corner of the library section > Go to Account Storage > Tap on Manage Storage.

After the new Gmail update, when you see a photo attachment in the Gmail message, you will be able to save the e-mail photo directly to Google photo. This will be possible with G-mail’s Save to photo button. According to the company, the new feature will provide users the facility to manually backup Google Photos by downloading photos from G-mail. This feature will be turned on by default. In this way, users will be able to choose Save photo. Google’s new G-mail feature will be rolled out gradually over the next 15 days.

Since user’s storage is shared across Google Drive, Gmail and Google Photos, users can check how much storage they have used upon their Google account by checking it from Google Photos, Gmail, or Google Drive. Users can decide if they want to free up space or consider paid options to buy more storage. If users feel that their storage data is being used up, they can consider paid options from Google One storage that give 100GB, 200GB and 2TB for Rs 130, Rs 210 and Rs 650 per month.
