Google Announces Google One With Simplified Cloud Storage Plans, Family Plans And More

Google is using cloud storage to its potential and providing users a better way to store their data, the best example is Google Photos. Today, Google announced Google One, which is a new paid storage service which features simplified plans that are cheaper and also give subscribers other benefits, like deals and better customer support. 

All Google accounts receive 15GB of free storage, with the first paid tier starting at $1.99 per month for 100GB. Under “Google One” this is not changing, but there is a new 200GB tier for $2.99. Meanwhile, instead of getting only a terabyte, $9.99 a month now provides 2TB of storage.

Existing 1TB Drive plans will be upgraded to 2TB at no extra cost, while pricing for plans larger than 2TB will remain the same. Google notes that “the way you use Drive to store and share files doesn’t change.” Here are the plans which Google One offers:

  • 15GB = free
  • 100GB = $1.99 per month
  • 2TB = $9.99 per month
  • 10TB = $99.99 per month
  • 20TB = $199.99 per month
  • 30TB = $299.99 per month
Google One includes family sharing, so you’ll be able to share your plan with up to 5 people, all of which will get their own private storage space, all on a single bill. Additionally, subscribers will get a number of new advantages like “one-tap access to experts for help with our consumer products and services.” Other benefits include credits on Google Play, deals on select hotels found in Google Search, and other “extras” over time.

Google One is first launching in the US, with existing Drive storage subscriber automatically being upgraded over the coming months. In fact, these will likely be the first users to gain access to the new plans, with Google noting that “initially, One will only be available on a limited basis.”

Those users should expect to see an email confirmation of the handover, while the program is soon expanding globally. You can sign-up for updates on Google One right here.
