Google One: Everything you need to know

From cloud storage to free Play credits, this is Google One.

Google One made its debut this May as a rebranding for paid Google Drive storage. However, Google One’s a lot more than a fresh coat of paint. With new storage plans and extra member benefits, there’s never been a better time to upgrade your cloud storage game.

Here’s everything you need to know about Google One!

The latest Google One news

November 14, 2018 — Google One launching in Canada and the United Kingdom

Following its release in the U.S. back in August, Google One is now expanding to both the United Kingdom and Canada.

For our UK readers, prices start at £1.99/month for the 100GB plan and go all the way up to £239.99/month for the seriously massive 30TB one. If you’re in Canada, you’ll pay between $25.99/year and $419.99/month.

The rollout’s taking place now in both countries, so if you aren’t seeing the option to join right away, check back again soon and it should be waiting for you.

All the big details

Google One is the new place for buying paid Google Drive storage

If you want to buy more cloud storage for your Google Drive account, that’s now handled through Google One.

Your actual files and everything are still in Google Drive — Google One is simply the new name under which paid plans are purchased.

Here’s how much the various plans cost

Just like before, everyone starts out with 15GB of Drive storage for free. If you end up running out or realize you’re going to need more, you can upgrade to one of the following plans:

  • 100GB for $1.99/month (or $19.99/year)
  • 200GB for $2.99/month (or $29.99/year)
  • 2TB for $9.99/month (or $99.99/year)
  • 10TB for $99.99/month
  • 20TB for $199.99/month
  • 30TB for $299.99/month

Compared to the previous Drive storage offerings, the 200GB plan is entirely new, and the $9.99/month option has been upgraded from 1TB to 2TB. If you were previously paying for the 1TB plan, it’s upgraded to 2TB at no extra charge to you.

Your membership comes with extra goodies, too

Those small changes to the storage plans are nice, but where Google One really shines is with the other features that your membership comes with.

If you sign up for any of the paid plans, you get access to premium customer support and various benefits like Google Play credits and discounts on hotels. Perhaps most importantly, you can share your storage with up to 5 other Google accounts that each gets their own private section of storage to use.
