Google One is replacing Drive for paid online storage

Google One is replacing Drive for paid online storage

Over the next few months, starting in the USA, all paid consumer Google Drive storage plans will become Google One plans, Google announced Monday.

Google will be automatically be upgrading the paid Google Drive customers to their comparable Google One plan over the coming months, so keep an eye out for that.

Google is rolling out new changes to its storage plans that include a new, low-priced storage plan and half off the price of its 2TB storage option, the company announced today.

Google's paid storage plans are set to become more affordable this year, following the roll-out of the new "Google One".

The upgraded storage plan options range from 100GB to 30TB, with pricing starting at $1.99 per month for 100GB of storage. But the big news is that the 1TB plan is now a 2TB plan for the same price - $9.99 Dollars per month.

Indonesian family that bombed churches well off, friendly
Police said they killed four suspected members of JAD in Cianjur, West Java Province, and arrested two others, the BBC reported. The person identified as D.O., who carried out the third church attack, was the leader of JAD's Surabaya cell.

Aside from these three changes, the rest of the existing plans remain the same.

The primary difference now is that the system allows for one-tap access to live customer service representatives. The new Google One addition will not impact G Suite business customers.

Google also included family sharing in their first release on Google One. Other benefits will be added for Google One subscribers over time.

Google One will begin rolling out in USA over the next few months, and then expand globally later this year.

The idea with Google One is to provide a "simple plan for expanded storage that includes extra benefits", says the company.

American sent a man, fell in love with 65K SMS app
An Arizona woman accused of stalking a man she met online and texting him more than 65,000 times is speaking out from behind bars. The man was not in the U.S. at the time but alerted officers when he saw the 31-year-old while checking his home security camera.

10 TB plan at $99.99/month. 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. If you fit that description, you'll gain all the aforementioned benefits and have the option to adjust your plan based on the new pricing tiers.

Going forward, users will also be able to share their storage with up to 5 family members. Customers also get perks like credits on Google Play or deals on certain hotels found via Google Search.

Finally, Google is also adding a family option with One. So now, these services and more are basically sub-brands of One.

What kinds of new services or features should you expect with Google One?
