Good morning! Google Photos’ offer of unlimited free storage is one big reason why the service was able to scale up to a billion users in just a few years. So Google’s recent decision to end the unlimited space—and charge people for more room as they need it—is an inflection point. As Jared Newman explains, it could also be a harbinger of things to come for many Google services as the company aims to be less dependent on ad revenue.
