Google One is coming soon

Google One is the new way to store your data online with Google, taking over from the company's previous Google Drive storage plans.

The Google Blog describes some new benefits delivered via Google One. This storage spans storage across Google apps like Photos, Drive, Docs and Gmail.

Google Drive's free 15GB plan is set to remain. Google also slashed of prices of other storage plans. Additionally, the search engine giant has also dropped its 1TB pack which was priced at $9.99 per month. The rollout will begin with the USA and will eventually expand globally.

Google just slashed the prices off of Drive's paid cloud storage plans.

You can sign up to receive email updates when Google One is available "in your area", which suggests the expert advice will be offered either by phone or in person. In the future it will be possible to divide the used space between the five members of the family.

Customers gain "access to Google experts" according to Google.

Secondly, Google One will be covering "a lot of other Google products too". But that's going to change, as it will apparently replace Google Drive. The Verge reports that customers get access to live chat support but Google's announcement does not confirm that. Everyone will still get their own private storage space on this family storage, even if the bill is common. And now the company is revamping its cloud storage platform and adding new subscription plans in an effort to streamline the service. Those on the 1TB tier will automatically be upgraded. Except it appears a plan for a 200 GB for $2.99 per month and a plan with 2 TB of storage fell from $19,99 to $9,99 per month.

Those "additional benefits" include tech support.

For everyone else, we're working to bring Google One to you later this year.

The new plans give users more options for every budget, but you're also getting more for your money.

A benefit for families is that these new plans can be shared.
