Back in November, Google announced that Docs, Sheets, Slides and other Workspace files will count towards storage cookies. This is set to launch for personal accounts on June 1, but Workspace users will have an extension to 2022.
Google Workspace accounts, such as free personal users, are still set to have high-upload uploads in Google Photos included in the Drive quota in June. There is no change in this milestone.
However, newly created Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, Drawings, Forms, or Jamboard files from Workspace users will not count toward storage until February 1, 2022. In the meantime, existing files from these products will similarly not count toward storage. “Unless they change again on February 1
Administrators can now check the User User Report for Apps (General> Images & Disk Sections) for a “comprehensive look at storage usage” throughout the organization. However, Google is working on new space management tools.
This delay is due to Google waiting to ensure that these “new admin tools for identifying and managing storage and allocation storage” are in place before the policy takes effect.
We have decided to postpone the counting of Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, Drawings, Forms or Jamboard files against storage quotas until the tool is in place.
