Google to offer cheaper prices for paid storage plans

One simple way to get more out of Google - Google Blog

It does not replace Google Drive but converts all Google Drive paid storage plans to Google One, making it cheaper.

The 2TB plan, which usually costs $19.99 (R249.85) per month, will now cost $9.99 (R124.86) a month. It's also rebranding these storage plans (but not Google Drive itself) as "Google One".

Brandon Badger, Google's group product manager for Google One, told me the team looked at how people use the storage plan.

Along with the new price structure, Google is touting other Google One features including access to experts for customer support and "extras" like credits for Google Play or deals from partnering hotels in Google Search. With the introduction of new plans by Google One, Google has expanded its limits on the storage subject. So while Google One brings together all of the company's storage plans, including resurrecting dead ones, this will also allow users to have easy access to Google's live support as well. And we'll be adding more benefits over time. Google also tells me that it will roll out a new Android app to help users manage their plans (not their files). Many support channels for Google products lead you down a path to the Google Product Forums which are staffed for the most part with volunteer experts. Users now have more devices, shoot more 4K video and share those files with more family members, who in turn also have more devices.

If you've been on a paid version of Google Drive, you'll be seeing a name change hitting the service soon. While I've never had a need for such a feature, I'm sure there are many paying Drive customers who have asked for the feature. "With lots of options, ranging from 100GB to 30TB, you can choose the plan that's right for you", Diwanji added.

NBA Eastern Conference Finals: Cavaliers vs. Celtics
The Celtics came out fighting against the Cavaliers from word go in Game 1 and Cleveland just couldn't cope all four quarters. Before Sunday's game , a video on the big board highlighted "experts" doubting these Celtics in the postseason.

One of the most common requests we've received is for storage plans to be sharable within a family.

In addition, Fontaine noted that users with paid storage accounts also tend to be heavy Google users in general, so combining storage and support seemed logical.

Speaking of updates. Google One now has an official landing page where you can sign up to receive news and updates about the new plans including when they're available in your area. The old 1TB plan has been replaced by the new 2TB plan at the same price.

So, what is Google One exactly?
