- Google One is a new plan that will replace all online Drive storage plans.
- The Google One name change also brings upgraded storage tiers, expert support, and family sharing.
- Google One will roll out in the coming months starting in the U.S.
Google has announced a new plan called Google One, which will replace its current online Drive storage plans.
If you were to buy Google Drive storage right now, that cloud storage amount would also be shared across services like Gmail or Google Photos. After today’s announcement, buying online storage from Google will fall under the Google One moniker.
The company is also rolling out some upgrades and additional features with this name change. One plans will still start at $1.99/month for 100GB, but the company is also adding a new 200GB plan for $2.99/month. All 1TB plans at $9.99/month will be upgraded to 2TB plans free of charge, meaning there’s no more 1TB plan. All plans larger than 2TB will remain the same.
Google One customers will also gain one-tap access to product experts in case they run into an issue with any of Google’s services. Customers will also receive extras like Google Play credits and deals on select hotel bookings found in Search.
Finally, Google One plans can be shared with the family. You can add up to five family members to your plan.
All paid Google Drive storage customers will be upgraded to One over the next few months. The change does not affect G Suite business customers. It will roll out in the coming months starting in the U.S. You can sign up for Google One updates at the link below.
