Google One users will also get one-tap access to experts for help with Google's consumer products and services, because Google says that people who use a lot of storage tend to use a lot of other Google products as well.

Google says that Drive storage will flip over to One storage automatically "over the coming months". The previous 1TB Google Drive plan is no more.

The update makes Google's consumer storage plans more competitive against options like Dropbox and Microsoft's OneDrive.

While we originally relied on hard drives to store all our documents and files, things have started to move to the cloud - for better or for worse. Every member will get their private storage space as well as the additional benefits of Google One.

Google has announced new Google One cloud storage plans today as part of its Google Drive storage rebrand. Google One will also offer deals on select hotels through Google Search and credits that can be used with Google Play.

Google users now get 15GB of free storage for their accounts, with Google One there will be new tiers available with Google advising 100GB plans will start at $1.99USD, with 200GB costing $2.99USD and 2TB will be available for $9.99USD per month.

In a blog post on Monday, the company wrote: "One of the most common requests we've received is for storage plans to be sharable within a family".

Google One is Google's new paid storage service.

Google One will be available initially in the USA, with customers from the paid Drive storage plans upgrading automatically. The $9.99 option - the most popular plan - will now net you 2 TB of storage. You can add up to five family members to your plan.

Perhaps the most interesting aspect of Google One is what the company might do later. This was already available for the company's paid G Suite accounts, but this is the first time the general public has been able to access premium Google support.
