Google Introduces Google One, A More Generous Replacement For Google Drive

Google is providing updated plans for extended storage in the form of Google One and all the premium plans from Google Drive will be updated to Google One in near future. In case you needed any more direct confirmation, I think this is it. Keep an eye out for when Google One becomes available in your country.

Google is now getting some improvements for its cloud storage for paid customers. Let us see what all changes does the Google One brings to the table. As reported by The Verge, Google One's cheapest plan offers 100GB of cloud storage for just $2 per month.

Moving on up the ladder, users now on the 1TB plan will automatically be upgraded to 2TB in coming months but the upgrade will be at no extra charge. Since people are storing more than ever before, and cloud based services expanding day by day: "We're introducing Google One, a simple plan for expanded storage that includes extra benefits to help you get more out of Google", the California based giant added.

However, as the quality, resolution and hence size of the photos and videos is going up with the advent of 4K, more and more storage is required by people. For those heavier users who want more than 2TB of storage, pricing will remain the same as it is now with Google Drive.

Easy to share with your family: Google one allows to share plans among family members or friends.

If you have a paid Drive storage plan, you'll be upgraded to Google One automatically over the coming months, starting in the US and then expanding globally. All google consumer services, including drive, YouTube Red, and play music or whatever becomes of that, available with a single subscription. Google's new plans will pose a major challenger to Apple's iCloud storage with the new pricing. There will also be a feature of one-click customer support, accessible across various Google applications. This change doesn't affect G Suite business customers. The storage plans will roll out in the U.S.in the coming months, with offerings in other regions thereafter.

Over the past couple of years there have been some hints about Google beginning a shift towards selling services, besides things like Gmail and Search.
