Google Local Guides Drive reward is dropped from 1TB to 100GB
If you’re closing in on level four with Google’s Local Guides program, it’s time to step on the gas.
As we inform you in the last post 1TB of Google Drive Disk Space for Free!,
because after July 21, the offer of free Google Drive storage drops from 1TB to 100GB. The unfortunate notice came in one of the regular emails to contributors about the program. 100GB is still big though, but for heavy users there who synchronizes everything online to have a safe storage of their files, 1TB is of great help of course!
We are changing the Drive storage benefit for Level 4 from 1 TB to 100 GB, so that we can continue giving Drive storage to all Level 4 qualified Local Guides. Existing Local Guides who were signed up before July 7, 2016 (12am GMT) can still unlock the original 1 TB offer if they reach Level 4 by July 21, 2016 (12am GMT).
So don’t forget to sign up and become a Google Local Guide to get your FREE 1 Terabyte Google Drive Storage upgrade! You can register here.
Reducing storage offers unfortunately isn’t new, as Microsoft irked some customers recently over scaling back how much free space it offers through OneDrive. It’s hard to imagine Google running out of space, but it’s possible the program got so popular the company didn’t want to give out too much free room inside of its cloud.
