Google upgrading Google Drive storage plans to Google One

Google upgrading Google Drive storage plans to Google One

Google One is offering new cloud storage tiers, better pricing for some of those tiers, and some freebies to entice users into the ecosystem. Everyone gets their own private storage space as well as the additional benefits of Google One.

So, what's new in Google One?

New plans start at US$1.99 for 100GB of storage, US$2.99 for 200GB, and 2TB for US$9.99 per month, but Australian pricing hasn't been announced yet.

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

In addition to the actual disk space in the Google cloud, owners of even the cheapest One tariff plan will have access to 24-hour technical support, ready to answer questions about any Google products and services. The new plans will offer more storage at lower prices.

Google creates support pages for pretty much every one of its products and services, which makes it extremely easy to find answers to commonly asked questions.


Google says, the increasing demand for storage space due to advanced mobile phones, and new file formats like 4K video and high-res photography paved way for the Google One.

If you have a paid Drive storage plan, you'll be upgraded to Google One automatically over the coming months, starting in the USA and then expanding globally. The company looks forward to adding more affordable plans in the future.

Google Drive is quite reasonable itself when it comes to cloud storage. Google will also help its users by rolling out its new Android app which will help them to manage their plans but not their files. All google consumer services, including drive, YouTube Red, and play music or whatever becomes of that, available with a single subscription.

Families paying for extra storage will be able to share that capacity with up to five other family members according to an annoucement by Google. This change doesn't affect G Suite business customers. The US goes first with other countries to follow.

For most, Drive's new pricing structure will be a reason to jump for joy.

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.
