How To Use Google Takeout? In a recent update, Google has announced that it is all set to change its policy of offering free unlimited storage service. From 1st June 2021, you will need to pay for the service if they exceed the 15 GB storage cap. You will need to pay Rs 130 per month or Rs 1,300 yearly for 100 GB storage. 

In case customers don’t want to continue with Google’s storage service, they will need to migrate their data.

Now, how can this be done?

Let’s have a look at Google Takeout Site and its features. 

What is Google Takeout?

Google Takeout will let you easily download all your data, including contacts, Google drive files, and YouTube videos. It allows you to easily backup your data without affecting your Google account.
