Google revamps Google Drive storage plans, introduces Google One

Google revamps Google Drive storage plans, introduces Google One

Google is launching a new service called Google One, which will be replacing premium Google Drive plans in the coming months.

The other advantage with Google One will be that users can add up to five family members to their plan and simplify storage under one bill.

Google Inc.is preparing to roll out a major overhaul of its cloud storage service that will up the ante against the competition in more ways than one. It gives you one-tap access to the experts regarding the company's products and services.

Google One will be rolling out to users in the US over the coming months and will later be followed by a global expansion.

If you pay for Google Drive storage, take note.

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. The ultimate goal is to transform the current Google Drive paid plans into Google One offerings later this year.

It is the first time that Google Drive customers get direct access to customer support agents. What's more interesting, however, is that the 1TB for $9.99/month tier is now gone and is substituted by a 2TB offer at the same price.

Secondly, Google One will be covering "a lot of other Google products too". Additionally every Google account will continue to get free unlimited photos - to be clear this has no impact on the storage allowance.

That 15GB free tier isn't changing, but Google is juggling its paid storage options at the lower end. According to Google, this won't affect G Suite business customers. A global expansion will follow after.

Users will receive an email confirming the change, however, individuals can request a notification when Google One arrives in Australia here.

If you are looking for a cloud service, which offers a robust service with an affordable price tag, then the Google One Cloud services look promising.
