With hard disks, USB drives and so on, that are used to store data soon becoming a thing of the past with software giants like Apple rolling out their iClouds for people to store files, documents, photos and so on, Google recently in a press announcement said they will be launching their new paid storage facility under the Google One brand. The software giant emphasized on their need to expand storage space for its customers, with more people reliant on clouds to store their personal information, photos, music, videos, documents, and so on.
In addition, Google said that they have simplified their storage facility for customers to easily pay for the amount of space they would require, considering that more people are using high resolution for their videos – increasing their requirement for more online space.
Through their official blog – The Keyword – the company rolled out the new paid storage plans. Based on their article, the paid storage plans will be – 100GB for $1.99/month, 200GB for $2.99/month, 2TB for $9.99/month, 10TB for $99.99/month, 20TB for $199.99/month and 30TB for $299.99/month. The company has insisted that their current Google Drive will not be rebranded but the upgrade will happen automatically on Google One. For possible business clients wary of the change, Google said that the upgrade will not affect current businesses that are functioning on its present paid storage plans.
Lastly, the software giant said that the change will be limited as of now, and soon will be available to all countries across the globe. The Google One upgrade will also have the ‘Google tap’ facility which will connect customers using the service to its 24/7 customer service for any queries or to navigate through the new feature.
