Google One is replacing Drive for paid online storage

Share

The new service is set to supplant the old paid Drive Storage model, with users being transitioned to the new Google One Service in "the coming months". 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 says that with Google One, you'll be able to share storage plan with you to five family members. 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. This will still make the most sense if you crave more storage above all else (say, to hold 4K videos), but you now have a few clear reasons to splurge even if your current capacity does the trick.

Google One will reportedly be replacing Drive entirely for those who take advantage of Google's paid storage plans, while also providing them with an additional storage plan offering, a price tweak and a couple of notable subscription perks.

It was very peaceful last week, ward congresses came and went and this week, we have even improved on the record of last week". Uche Oguike, without reference to it, pointing out that such responsibility was "the prerogative of the party".

And one of the leaders in cloud storage is Google Drive - a service that will soon be offering more affordable storage in the form of Google One. Users will also gain access to extras from other Google products such as credits on Google Play or deals on select hotels found in Google Search. This was already available for the company's paid G Suite accounts, but this is the first time the general public has been able to access premium Google support. But it's not too much of a stretch to assume Google will eventually offer Google One plans with YouTube Red, YouTube Music, Google Express.

That 15GB free tier isn't changing, but Google is juggling its paid storage options at the lower end.
