Google One: Google Drive cloud storage gets a new name, cheaper prices

Google is in the process of revamping the plans offered for storage and the premium plans for Google Drive to the latest plan with variety of benefits, which is being termed as Google One. Also, there is no information on the yearly pricing by Google One. How much will it cost and what's going to happen to existing Google Drive customers? Google One is offering new cloud storage tiers, better pricing for some of those tiers, and some freebies to entice users into the ecosystem. The new plans will offer more storage at lower prices. That's right. 2TB of Drive storage for only $9.99/month. Aside from this nomenclature nuance, however, Google One is being updated with new features and cheaper prices.

Millions of people use cloud services like Google One to store their data. Also, access to extras from other Google products, like credits on Google Play or deals on select hotels found in Google Search. And we'll be adding more benefits over time.

All Google One users who use this service with other products will get support from their pool of exports; this service is indeed very helpful for people with a non-technical background.

Many details about this tier of support are not yet clear.

Google One is a new initiative.

Google on Monday announced a brand new product, Google One. The plans are also claimed to be shareable with the family members. One can add up to five family members under the plan, so as to simplify storage under one bill. Clearly, Google is gunning to get some serious traction for its cloud storage service when it comes to sales to a mainstream audience. Google originally offered 2TB of storage space for $19.99 per month through Google Drive. Google hasn't shared what the pricing structure will be for shared plans but we'll be keeping an eye out for updates. You can stay informed about when Google One is arriving in your region by entering your email here.

"That's why we're introducing "Google One", a simple plan for expanded storage that includes extra benefits to help you get more out of Google", Pavni Diwanji, Vice President, Google One, wrote in a blog post late on Monday. Check out the Google One page for yourself at the link below.
