My point was its moving in that direction. Not this year and not next but eventually we'll be paying Google a ransom to hold on to our 20 years of stuff.
Enjoy

Have you used other services?
Yes

I was surprised how well the built in lg gallery performs for a local app.
While I'm not familiar with LGs I'm quite certain googles is better. Not to mention the fact that it isn't cloud based.

Nah I'd rather pay $1.99 a month.

(See?)
FTFY

So would I, and that's Google freedom to charge. Nothing is hostage.

FYI there's ways to get it for even less.

Is there a way to see how much storage I'm currently using that's not included in the 15gb's?

I will never pay for gmail, because as an early beta user from the early 2000's that hyped it up to everyone I knew, I won't forget how Gmail was marketed as a free email service where you will never have to delete another email again. 2gb really meant a lot in those days, I was even able to store my entire music library on gmail. Well, 17+ years and 10's of thousands of deleted emails later, gmail offers a measly 15gb and that includes data from other google services.

I'm no cheapskate, I happily pay for 10 mail accounts through Zoho, but I try my best to avoid giving my money to the lying, evil SJW bastards at google.

But those that ate uploaded already on high resolution will stay free, and won't count. ( for now)

Every once in a while, I delete my large emails to make room. I search for size:15000000 which pulls up all emails 15 mb or larger. Then I review them and delete the one's that are not important.

Wish there was a way instead to purge all newsletter/promotion emails that clog up gmail storage with images of products and the like.

Search for "unsubscribe" should work pretty well.

Need to clear up space in your Google account?
In addition to your Google drive Gmail can use up quite some space.
On desktop, search larger:8M to get any email bigger then 8MB or search has:attachment for all emails with attachments.

You can easily search for all emails sent by a particular email and delete them, but the main emails that matter are the ones over a certain size.

I donít mind getting rid of all of them, donít want to have to keep searching for each sender one at a time.

Another issue with gmail is that if I forwarded something and it was a conversation, that entire conversation would ostensibly get deleted, when really I only want to delete the original email.
