  • Google Introduces Google One, A More Generous Replacement For Google Drive

Similarly, the basic free plan too has been kept the same, the one which lets users have access to 15 GB of storage to those using Google services. Everyone gets their own private storage space as well as the additional benefits of Google One. The new features and benefits offered by Google One certainly make their cloud storage services stand out from main competitors.

So, what's new in Google One?

The base package for Google Drive (100GB for $1.99 per month) is sticking around and will be the entry level option for anyone trying to buy into some cloud space, but a new $2.99/200GB tier will be available.

A consumer would be undoubtedly happy if he/she will be able to max out 100 GB with 4K videos and high-res images these days, but it also provides a feature of one-tap access to Google experts to solve any issue, or for a help with any google consumer product and services, it is the only feature that explains the new brand name. The company looks forward to adding more affordable plans in the future. For those heavier users who want more than 2TB of storage, pricing will remain the same as it is now with Google Drive. At the same time, a previous plan of $9.99 - which was actually offering 1TB of data - is now offering 2TB of storage for consumers. Last change in Google's storage plan took place in 2014; they did so after Dropbox reduced price of their storage plans. All google consumer services, including drive, YouTube Red, and play music or whatever becomes of that, available with a single subscription.

The good news is that subscribing to Google One will be a cheaper affair than current Google Drive plans. There will also be a feature of one-click customer support, accessible across various Google applications. Previously, 24-hour customer support was restricted to enterprise users of Google Drive.

All Google One users who use this service with other products will get support from their pool of exports; this service is indeed very helpful for people with a non-technical background.

For most, Drive's new pricing structure will be a reason to jump for joy.

Google will start migrating the customers over the coming months starting with USA customers. Under Google One, this same service costs half the price.
