Google Photos calculates free functions

The Google Photos app has several photo editing features. They are available to everyone free of charge. However, Google is preparing to make some of them pay with a subscription to Google One.

Originally, Google One was an offer to have additional storage space in their Google account. The offer has since been enriched with a number of services. The newest one is none other than a Google VPN (currently only in the US). Next on the list are the Google Photos editing services.

9to5Google spotted a few mentions while searching the code of the Google Photos app on Android:

As a Google One member, you have access to additional editing functions. Get additional editing capabilities with a Google One membership. Unlock this feature and more with a Google One membership. Unlock more editing and functions [espace_de_stockage] with a Google One membership

Some users have already noticed the change in the Android app. When you open Google Photos, the app will inform you that Color Pop requires Google One. So far it has been a free edit feature.

For your information: The Google One subscription starts at 1.99 € / month with 100 GB of storage space. This goes up to € 9.99 / month for 2 TB.
