Pixel 4 Will Not Come With Full-Resolution Free Photo Storage

Ever since Google revealed the first Pixel, users who purchased one of the firm’s handsets can hope for free full-resolution video and photo storage, at least for a couple of years. It seems that you will not have that luxury with the Pixel 4. Google made no citation of complete-quality storage at its latest event, and a visit to the product page of Pixel 4 comprises a disclaimer showing that free storage is restricted to “high quality” videos and photos that can be “resized or compressed.” You are likely in the same boat as every other user using Google Photos. It is not sure what motivated the evident turnaround.

While this is not essentially an ice-breaker if you are purchasing a Pixel 4, particularly if you are already paying for more storage on Google, it is possibly not what you were expecting to listen to if you are a Pixel-toting user. You now have to either pay additional cash or accept that your pics will lose a bit of quality when they get to Google Photos. If there is a consolation, it is that Google apparently has more assurance in the Pixel series—it does not feel the requirement to sweeten the agreement with perks and cloud storage.

On a related note, at I/O in May, Google demonstrated its Live Caption technology, which offers captions on your device for all audio in real-time, except for video and voice calls. Google has now disclosed when you will be capable of taking benefit of the accessibility tech.

Live Caption at first is accessible on Pixel 4, and it will come to Pixel 3a and 3 handsets later in 2019. Google claims it is operating with Android makers to bring Live Caption to other handsets in 2020. It will be accessible at first in English, with support for extra languages coming later.
