Google Is Replacing Drive Storage With More Generous 'Google One' Plans

Google One Features: The successor to Google Drive cloud storage explained

If you are already subscribed to the $9.99 per month option which offers 1GB of storage, you'll get upgraded to the new 2GB option automatically. This isn't a sort of rebranding of Drive or anything, but it should help users understand the company's cloud storage plans a lot better than before.

Google One will also let users share their plan with up to five members of the family, providing each user with a private storage space in the Drive. This sounds like the start of a broader Google subscription plan that bundles many services together, in a way that might compete with Amazon Prime.

The way consumers can use these plans is changing, too. It's very possible that Google is also trying to coax users out of the free Google Drive option (remember, if you allow Google to shrink the resolution of your photos, you can store an unlimited amount) and into paid options. Additionally, the company says that all paid consumer Drive storage plans will be converted to Google One in the next few months.


Over the next few months, starting in the USA, all paid consumer Google Drive storage plans will become Google One plans, Google announced Monday. If you're on the plan, you'll get things like Google Play credit, deals on select hotels found in Google Search, and more. To accommodate the change, the company is introducing some new storage tiers for those who don't wanna pay that much but need more space for their content. Google is upgrading existing one terabyte plans to two terabyte for free.

So essentially, your Google Drive paid storage plan will now be called Google One.

You can sign-up for updates on Google One right here. "And we'll be adding more benefits over time". The first paid tier, 100GB for $1.99/mo, will remain in place-but there will be a new 200GB $2.99/mo tier, according to TechCrunch, plus a 2TB, $9.99/mo tier. For more information, you can sign up here to find out when it's available for you.
