Google One to replace Drive online storage plans

Google One – A premium cloud storage space to replace Google Drive

One simple way to get more out of Google - Google Blog

Google announced Google One - an end-to-end solution for private users, including a cloud-based data warehouse with family access support that is cheaper than the current Drive, and 24-hour free technical support for other Google products.

Google is now getting some improvements for its cloud storage for paid customers.

So, what is Google One exactly?

The ruler of tariffs has undergone significant changes: a new plan has been added, costing $ 2.99 per month for 200 GB; 2 TB in the cloud can now be obtained for $ 9.99 instead of the previous $ 19.99 per month; from the tariff of $ 9.99 for 1 TB the company made a decision to refuse, so all who use it at the moment will be transferred for free to a new tariff with 2 TB of space in the cloud.

What seems to be missing from Google One is the 1TB tier, which may be enough cloud storage for some Google users.

The company said paid Drive storage plans will be automatically upgraded to Google One. The new plans will offer more storage at lower prices. In the next few months, all paid consumers of Google Drive storage plans will be upgraded to "Google One".

Google's group product manager for Google One named Brandon Badger, told me the team looked at how people use the storage plan.

A consumer would be undoubtedly happy if he/she will be able to max out 100 GB with 4K videos and high-res images these days, but it also provides a feature of one-tap access to Google experts to solve any issue, or for a help with any google consumer product and services, it is the only feature that explains the new brand name. And we'll be adding more benefits over time. All google consumer services, including drive, YouTube Red, and play music or whatever becomes of that, available with a single subscription. Google One will also come with family sharing features enabled by default, with up to five family members supported per Google One account. All customers outside G Suite business will be shifted to the new Google One plans. Even if a user has the $2 per month plan, he or she can still access Google's unparalleled customer support.

The upgrade from Google Drive to Google One will start in U.S., and more countries will be covered over time.

Google One is a new initiative.
