    Introducing Google One for expanded storage


    One simple way to get more out of Google



    More and more, we rely on the internet for ways to safely store the things that matter—making life simpler and less cluttered. Over the years, we’ve provided people with easy, secure ways to create, store and share files online, including 15 GB of free space with every Google Account. Thanks to mobile phones, and new file formats like 4K video and high-res photography, people are storing more than ever before.

    That’s why we’re introducing Google One, a simple plan for expanded storage that includes extra benefits to help you get more out of Google. In the next few months, all paid consumer Google Drive storage plans will be upgraded to Google One. This change doesn’t affect G Suite business customers.

    More space, smarter options

    With Google One, we’ve upgraded our paid storage plans so you’ll have all the space you need for your Google Drive, Gmail, and original quality photos and videos in Google Photos. With lots of options, ranging from 100GB to 30TB, you can choose the plan that’s right for you.

    Access to Google experts, plus extra benefits

    People who use a lot of storage tend to use a lot of other Google products, too. So with Google One you get one-tap access to experts for help with our consumer products and services. Plus, you’ll gain access to extras from other Google products, like credits on Google Play or deals on select hotels found in Google Search. And we’ll be adding more benefits over time.

    Easy to share with your family

    One of the most common requests we’ve received is for storage plans to be sharable within a family. With Google One, you can add up to five family members to your plan and simplify storage under one bill. Everyone gets their own private storage space as well as the additional benefits of Google One.

    Coming soon to paid Google Drive plans

    If you have a paid Drive storage plan, you’ll be upgraded to Google One automatically over the coming months, starting in the U.S. and then expanding globally. Look out for an email confirming your upgrade to Google One, where you can manage your storage plan and benefits. The way you use Drive to store and share files doesn’t change.

    For everyone else, we’re working to bring Google One to you later this year. If you’d like to be notified when Google One becomes available in your country, sign up for an update.

    I have a problem with most of these data storage plans, OneDrive, Dropbox, Google Drive, Amazon Drive, etc.. The problem is they change the plan options so often, that you never really know what you will end up with. They constantly change the rates, or the amount of storage, or what types of files can be stored, not to speak of the interface.

    I found a solution, my brother and I bought WD MyClouds, I have several at my home, he has several at his, he stores his files on my drives and I store mine on his, works out great and no monthly fees. LOL

    I have a collection of HDDs of different sizes I use in removable HDD bays in the case, works faster than USB connection, same speed as when connected internally.

    I don't either! I found, and so did many others, that Gdrive was deleting large numbers of files off our computers. It does this with no alerts. This is documented in the Gdrive forums. Not sure the cause, but it has been going on since sometime last year. And no useful feed back from Google. Had to get rid of Gdrive and switch to Onedrive (plus Dropbox, which I already had for photos only).
