Google revamps storage pricing; DBX -3.7%

Google revamps storage pricing; DBX -3.7%

Google storage plans apply to multiple services across Google's cloud.

The goal seems to be to make Google's storage offerings for consumers more competitive with Apple's. In addition to this, the company is also offering customers of the new plans "one-tap" access to experts.

What do you think of Google One?

If you're wondering when you'll be able to try out Google One for yourself, the company claims the upgrade will happen "automatically over the coming months" if you subscribe to any paid Drive storage plan; even the cheapest $1.99/month 100GB plan. "This change doesn't affect G Suite business customers". The plan is to offer various perks to One subscribers, but Google is vague on what that will entail. Every member gets their own private storage and access to all the benefits of Google One.

Arsene Wenger fascinated by India
The Gunners boss will leave the club after nearly 22 years at the helm when the final whistle blows at Huddersfield today. However, the outgoing manager believes that Arsenal will not struggle next season even though they will be on transition.

Google One will be rolling out to users in the USA over the coming months and will later be followed by a global expansion. Meanwhile, Google is also adding a $2.99 plan that gives you 200 GB of storage, which might be a solid option for people who are simply running out of space but don't feel like shelling out $120 a year. The 1TB plan that was previously offered for $9.99 will be discontinued and customers on that plan will be automatically upgraded to the 2TB plan at no extra cost.

Google notes that thanks to mobile phones and features such as 4K video recording and high-resolution photography, users are storing "more than ever before". The search giant adds that it will be adding more benefits to its other products over time. They can sign up to be notified when it becomes available in their country here.
