Storage – If your device’s storage is full, or close to full, it could impact performance and the ability to store more information.

That is the most stupid thing I have ever seen about cloud storage...  ATT fails to list google photos WHICH IS FREE to backup photos.  This whole post is full of nothing but uselessness...   Sorry Chris but this is utter garbage.

Google considers Google photo as part of Google drive.  In fact you can access your photos from Drive.
