Today, Google is unveiling what it calls Google One, a shakeup of its cloud storage options.
There are a variety of options to choose from, as has been the case for quite some time, starting with 100GB of cloud storage for just $1.99 per month, all the way up to 30TB of cloud storage that costs $299.99 per month. For Google Drive customers that are already forking over $9.99 per month for 1GB of cloud storage, Google will be upgrading them automatically to the new 2TB option.
There are benefits with Google One, too, including access to Google experts with just a simple tap and credits for Google Play:
“People who use a lot of storage tend to use a lot of other Google products, too. So with Google One you get one-tap access to experts for help with our consumer products and services. Plus, you’ll gain 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.”
Google One will also let customers share their cloud storage with up to five family members. Each member will get their own private storage space, and all of the included benefits of Google One, too:
“One of the most common requests we’ve received is for storage plans to be sharable within a family. With Google One, you can add up to five family members to your plan and simplify storage under one bill. Everyone gets their own private storage space as well as the additional benefits of Google One.”
Google says it will be upgrading all paid Google Drive subscribers over the coming months, with changes happening first in the United States, before finally rolling out globally.[via Google]
