Google One to replace all paid Google Drive storage plans

1 Mins read

Google has launched a new storage plan called Google One, which will replace all the paid consumer Google Drive storage plans in coming months.

The search engine giant said that Google One will offer more benefits and help users get more out of Google.

Google One will come with multiple storage plans between 100GB to 30TB, so that users can choose the right plan for them. The plans will start at 100GB for $1.99, 200GB for $2.99, and 2TB for $9.99 per month.

Pricing for storage plans larger than 2TB will remain the same. Furthermore, Google will upgrade the existing 1TB Drive plans to 2TB at no additional cost.

The second enhancement down the pipe is one-tap access to experts for help. Users will be able to contact the Google customer care staff at any time of the day via phone, email and chat.

Google said that the customers who use its storage plans also use other Google products. With Google One, the company will provide its customers access to additional Google products, including credits on Google Play or deals on selected hotels found in Google Search.

Google One will allow users to share their storage quota with up to five family members. All the members will get their own private storage space and additional benefits.

Google provides its users 15GB of free space with every Google account. With the high-resolution cameras and the new file formats like 4K video, users need more space. The sharable space with family will help users to simplify storage under one bill.

Google One will begin rolling out in US over the next few months, and then expand globally later this year.

The users with paid Drive storage plans will receive an email for upgrade confirmation, where they will be able to manage the storage plans and benefits.

The upgrade will not affect the business customers of G-Suite. Further, there will be no changes to the way customers use Drive to store and share files.
