Those who use Google Photos will have to pay the price from tomorrow

We have read a lot about Google Photos in the last few days. For example, we will not be able to upload free photos from June 1. But this is not the only thing, it is more than this. Because from 1st June most of the Gmail account users are going to be affected.

The first thing is that if you have been using Google Photos to backup, then from tomorrow it will not be free. The second thing is that you have to understand how many photos or videos are uploaded in Google Photos.

There are three types of photos videos uploaded in Google Photos. These have high quality, compressed quality and original quality. High quality and compressed quality are still free. But there is still money to be paid for the original quality.

From tomorrow you will have to pay

From tomorrow you will have to pay for uploading all three quality on Google Photos. How much money will have to be paid and whether Google’s plan will tell about it further. Before this, know what you are getting.

If you have a Gmail account, you will get 15GB of space. This space is not just for uploading photos and videos, but everything will be in this space. Everything means emails of all your Gmail, photos of Google Drive and photos or videos uploaded on Google Photos. In such a situation, this space is not much for the hardcore smartphone users. What will happen to the previously backed up photos?

Actually, Google has given some relief to the people here. There will be no need to make any changes to the pics or videos stores on your Google Photos before June 1. Because Google has said that it will not count in 15GB of space. That is, you can leave the old photos and use them anytime later. If tomorrow your account shows 15GB full, then you have to remove the space by deleting the emails or photos of the account. Because emails will not be sent or received in case the space becomes full.

Price For Google Photos

Talking about plans, you will get monthly and annual plans here. You have to pay 130 rupees every month or Rs 1,300 a year for 100GB. For 200GB, you have to pay Rs 210 per month or Rs 2,100 per year. For 2TB space, you have to pay 650 rupees every month or 6,500 rupees a year.

In fact, in the new IT rules framed on February 25. The government had made it clear that any social media platform that has more than 50 lakh users will have to appoint a grievance officer in India. Three months’ time was given for this. Its limit got over on May 25. Last week, Twitter told in the Delhi High Court that it has appointed a Grievance Officer on May 28. However, the government is not satisfied with this.

In this notice sent by the Ministry of IT, it has been written that the government is not satisfied with the reply of Twitter.

Apart from this, the company has given its address as the office of the law firm, which is not valid according to the rules.

The notice read, “India is the largest democracy. Twitter was adopted here with open arms, but despite working here for 10 years. Twitter has not been able to create such a mechanism to help the people of India to resolve their grievances about Twitter. People who face abuse or sexual misconduct on Twitter’s platform should get a mechanism to resolve their complaint. Twitter will have to follow the rules from 26 May 2021. “

To keep our service available, we will strive to comply with applicable law in India. But, just as we do around the world, we will continue to be strictly guided by principles of transparency, a commitment to empowering every voice on the service, and protecting freedom of expression and privacy under the rule of law,” said a spokesperson of Twitter.

“Right now, we are concerned by recent events regarding our employees in India and the potential threat to freedom of expression for the people we serve. We, alongside many in civil society in India and around the world, have concerns with regards to the use of intimidation tactics by the police in response to enforcement of our global Terms of Service, as well as with core elements of the new IT Rules. We plan to advocate for changes to elements of these regulations that inhibit free, open public conversation. We will continue our constructive dialogue with the Indian Government and believe it is critical to adopt a collaborative approach. It is the collective responsibility of elected officials, industry, and civil society to safeguard the interests of the public.”

Twitter has recently been asked to remove certain tags and block certain people recently. It seems to be that they are on the radar of the government.

WhatsApp told our partner website India Today Tech why it is challenging the Indian IT Rules Challenge. According to a spokesperson of WhatsApp, tracking a user’s chat means that the fingerprint of each message will be with WhatsApp. This will disrupt the privacy of the user who has his fundamental rights. We will continue to negotiate with the Government of India and try to find a solution to this. In this, if any legal valid request comes to us, then we will provide all the information we have about it.

WhatsApp has been asked about the new rule, who are posting wrongly, just have to give information about them. The company has said that it cannot give information of anyone alone because the messages on the platform are encrypted end-to-end. Due to this encryption system, neither WhatsApp nor any third person can see or read a message.

To obey these rules, it has to break the encryption of the messages of both the receiver and the sender. WhatsApp is expressing the inability to obey the new rule.

Controversy is going on between the government and big tech companies like Facebook, Google and Twitter. A new twist came when the police went to Twitter’s office a few days ago. Last week Twitter had labelled BJP’s spokesperson Sambit Patra’s post as a manipulated media.

Intermediary Guidelines have also been created by the government for large social media platforms. According to these guidelines, the social media platforms whose user base is more than 50 lakhs have to keep the resident complaints officer, the chief compliance officer and the nodal contact person.

For this, the government had given three months’ time which ended on 25 May. There are many controversies about this as well. Although Facebook has now said that it will accept the government’s new rule, in some places, there is a need for clarification.
