Google One is a new cloud storage service with perks

15 May 2018

Google is refreshing its cloud storage plans today with the introduction of a new service. The new upgrade will provide more storage space to the users at much cheaper rates than before and will also entitle the users to interact with Google experts to use the latest products of the company more efficiently. The $9.99 option - the most popular plan - will now net you 2 TB of storage.

As highly requested, consumers can add up to five family members to their Google One plan, with payment summarised in one bill.

All users with a paid Drive storage plan will be automatically upgraded to Google One in the upcoming months. This plan will be available along with the existing plans that start at US$1.99 for 100GB and goes all the way up to US# 299.99 for 30TB.

Google One will be available initially in the US, with customers from the paid Drive storage plans upgrading automatically. The actual storage and synchronization service will still be called Google Drive - confused yet? However, for consumers who want to buy 200GB storage, Google One has a new plan that comes at a monthly charge of $2.99 (approximately Rs. 205).

The goal seems to be to make Google's storage offerings for consumers more competitive with Apple's.

Google has made significant changes to its user interface over past couple of weeks. The previous 1TB plan, which was priced at $9.99 per month is dead - it has been doubled to 2TB for the same price.
