Google has changed its storage policies in a number of services.

Note this about Gmail, Google Drive, and Photos
“With these changes, we are in line with standard industry practice. Since you have previously used one or more of these products in your Google Account storage, we would like to inform you of the new guidelines in good time before they take effect June 1, 2021.

Below is a summary of the new guidelines. You can find a complete list of the changes in this support article ", Google reports to its customers in an email.

The new guidelines apply from June 1, 2021, and note this about Photos (the highlight is ours):
