Google made an announcement about its new subscription program called “Google One” a few months ago. This program provides users with more Google Drive Storage along with other such perks. A few weeks ago, Google gradually rolled its existing Drive subscribers over to a Google One membership.
From today, Google made the Google One subscription available for all. So, starting today, new users can easily sign up for the Google One subscription too. It is currently available in the U.S. and will be soon available in the other countries.
Google One Plans
Initial pricing for the Google One plan starts at $1.99 for 100 GB. You also get a plan of $2.99 for 200 GB, and a plan of $9.99 for 2 TB storage. All the plans are on monthly basis. If you need even more storage space, Google will surely provide you with 10 TB, 20 TB, and 30 TB plans priced at around $99.99 and $299.99 per month.
One of the best features that comes along with these new plans is “sharing”. You can now share your storage allotment with up to five family members if you wish to.
Google not only focuses on the storage, but also promises additional perks. One of the most important perks may be access to 24/7 live support. So, if you have any questions regarding a Google product, there Google experts on the other end. They will help you with figuring out any query you may have with any Google product.
One of the interesting perks here is deals on hotels. Whenever you search for hotels in Google Maps, you will get some interesting deals on them. Recently, Google provided its all One members with credits on Google Play. The company also made an announcement that it will soon provide members with deals on purchases made on Google Store and also through Google Express.
On one side, there is Google’s G Suite that provides many additional services and features. And on the other, there is Google One. No doubt, G Suite remains the best for such services and features. But, it is completely beneficial for businesses. For consumers, Google One proves to be the best. So, apart from businesses, you can now avail exciting offers and services by subscribing to the Google One.
The free plan continues to be the same as of 15 GB. You can store your files, photos, and most importantly Gmail. So, if you are using it since the beginning, you might be probably running out of space by now.
So, if you are a Google Drive user from the U.S., you are already on a Google One plan, as of now. But, if you are a new subscriber, you will need to sign up for a Google One account.
For the rest of us, you can sign up for getting an alert when the Google One is coming in your area. The sign up page for the Google One states:
For beginning, Google One will be available on a limited basis. But, if you are already a paid Drive storage consumer, you will be automatically upgraded to Google One over the coming months.
In the coming months, we can expect a worldwide launch of the Google One. In the Spanish-speaking countries, the Google One will be known as Google Juan.
