Google One: What You Need to Know

Google One: What You Need to Know

If you were to buy Google Drive storage right now, that cloud storage amount would also be shared across services like Gmail or Google Photos.

New Google One storage plans were announced today, decreasing the cost of Google Drive storage across the board. As per the company, the Google One is a simple plan for extended storage that includes extra benefits at a lower price. It will also add more versatility for those who opt for the basic free account with 15 GB of storage. Users will get an email with confirmation when they are moved to the new Google One storage, over Drive.

All paid Google Drive storage customers will be upgraded to One over the next few months.

The new storage plans offer between 100GB and 30TB of space.

Google One plans will start at 100 GB for $1.99, 200 GB for $2.99, and 2 TB for $9.99 per month, while pricing for plans larger than 2TB will remain the same.

Finally, Google says One will bring support for families. "The way you use Drive to store and share files doesn't change". Perhaps one subscription to each of Google consumer services. If you are already subscribed to the $9.99 per month option which offers 1GB of storage, you'll get upgraded to the new 2GB option automatically. The technology giant divulged plans to provide subscribers with "extras" via its other products, such as Google Play app credits and discounts redeemable at hotels that show up in search results.

Google One has now launched in the USA and it will expand globally in the next few months. Rather, it will no longer be the label Google puts on the gigabytes or terabytes of storage you share across its platforms. If you fit that description, you'll gain all the aforementioned benefits and have the option to adjust your plan based on the new pricing tiers.
