Google changes the strategy of its cloud storage, which is aimed at end users. The new product is called the company Google One. It includes new subscriptions in smaller stages. The name Google Drive is retained. At the same time, the prices of the 2 TB subscription will be reduced from $20 to $10 a month.
A Google One subscriber should also be able to share its cloud resources with up to five family members as the product is part of the family program that also provides access to other Google services.
Google is giving its paid cloud storage plans a new name: Google One replaces Google Drive. For users who do not pay money, everything stays the same: they continue to get 15 GB of free storage in Google Drive. All paying users will be automatically converted to Google One in the coming months, writes Google VP Pavni Diwanji. Nothing changes for corporate customers of G-Suite. The transition begins in the US, then globally. Google wants to publish more details later.
The storage offer of Google One ranges from 100 GB to 30 TB. The subscriptions start as before at $1.99 per month for 100 GB.The new 200 GB tariff should cost $2.99, 2 TB is available for $9.99(previously $19.99).
Plans goes as follows:
- 15 GB: Free
- 100 GB: $1.99 per month
- 200 GB: $2.99 per month
- 2 TB: $9.99 per month
Prices for storage larger than 2TB remain the same. As a bonus, customers receive support from “Google Experts”. In addition, there should be a family function: users can share their One subscription with up to five family members. The kids will get their own private storage space.
Google One should be “soon available,” as it is said. Interested parties can enter their e-mail address on the product page, so that Google informs them about the start. Initially, Google One should only be available “to a limited extent”. The previous “1 TB subscriptions” Google at no extra cost on the 2 -TB offer.
