Google Introduce Cheaper Cloud Storage With Google One

Google Introduce Cheaper Cloud Storage With Google One

The company has also made a decision to rebrand its cloud storage service and call it Google One as well as introduce new plans. Users will receive an email confirming their upgrade to Google's new service. The new service has six different paid storage plans - from $1.99/month for 100 GB to $299.99/month for 30 TB.

Google has also dropped the 1TB package and lowered the price of its 2TB plan from $19.99 per month to $9.99. Furthermore, every family member included in the plan will get their own private storage space on Google One.

For anyone who has a paid Drive subscription, you'll notice Google will prompt you to upgrade to One and do all of your billing through the new plan.

Google One will be available initially in the US, with customers from the paid Drive storage plans upgrading automatically. It will also give "one-tap access to experts" from the company who can help with consumer products and services. Everyday consumers are looking for additional storage beyond the (often low) free offerings of companies in the space, and Google One is a big step by the Mountain View, California-based company. This roster of extras will expand in the future, Google says, though in what ways, remains to be seen.

Google Drive is becoming Google One. So, if you were paying ten dollars a month for 1TB of cloud storage, you'll be upgraded 2TB at no extra cost.

Google Drive's free 15GB plan is set to remain. "We aspire to create out those as time passes", she mentioned. First launching in the United States, global expansion is scheduled to occur throughout the year. Existing users can sign-up for the upgrade to get Google One update.

The primary advantages of Google One program are the family sharing and live support. Drive still plays an important role in Google's cloud storage ecosystem for storing and synchronizing files, alongside Photos and Gmail.
