Google announces 'Google One' as a new paid cloud storage service

Google One Features: The successor to Google Drive cloud storage explained

Google One is replacing Drive for paid online storage

"With Google One you get one-tap access to experts for help with our consumer products and services".

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.

It's not a bad model, $2USD per month for an additional 100GB is pretty decent, and the new family sharing plan is interesting as well. Each of the members will get their own private storage as well as the other standard Google One perks. Now, the company has announced "Google One": a new plan for expanded storage that includes "extra benefits". Plus, Google says it may hand out free Google Play credits to buy apps, music and movies, and offer other sorts of deals as well. Cloud storage providers such as Dropbox, Google, Apple, and Microsoft have led the way in providing a limited amount of free cloud storage.

In a blog post on Monday, the company wrote: "One of the most common requests we've received is for storage plans to be sharable within a family".

To start with, according to The Verge, Google is slashing the price of their 2TB cloud storage plan from $19.99/month to a mere $9.99/month, and they'll be adding to their low-priced storage options with a $2.99/month 200GB storage plan.

Google will be automatically be upgrading the paid Google Drive customers to their comparable Google One plan over the coming months, so keep an eye out for that. For example, adding more storage to your account gives you more space for Gmail, Google Photos, and general file storage in Drive.

Even without the update to Google One, Drive remained one of the best storage options for the average user and corporation alike. The company states that it will add more benefits over time. They can sign up to be notified when it becomes available in their country here.
