With Google One, you can add up to five family members to your plan and simplify storage under one bill. The $9.99 option - the most popular plan - will now net you 2 TB of storage.

Google cut the price for 2TB cloud storage plan in half, and created a new 200GB option. If you already have a paid Drive account in the USA, the perks will automatically apply to your account in the "coming months".

Google announced that it is revamping its cloud storage plans to be better suited for the 4K and high-resolution photography mobile world of today.

Google One will soon be the cloud storage system users will visit to monitor and purchase data, replacing Google Drive. This storage spans storage across Google apps like Photos, Drive, Docs and Gmail. In addition, Google One will provide more features for subscribers.

Google One is being rolled out right now to consumers worldwide. Current customers with the 1TB plan will be upgraded to 2TB automatically. Each family member will get their own storage silo within your pool of paid Google One storage.

Talking about the paid plans of Google Drive, there has been no change to the price for users opting for 100GB of storage.

Google One is slowly rolling out worldwide. "And we'll be adding more benefits over time", Diwanji promised. First launching in the United States, global expansion is scheduled to occur throughout the year.

Google One is set to arrive in the coming months, but won't affect G Suite business customers. Before the upgrade, users will receive a confirmation email where they will be able to manage their storage plan and benefits. It is worth noting that this is an access to Google Experts for help with any Google consumer product and service.

Starting with pricing, Google One stays with the policy of providing 15GB of free space for every account, so free users won't see any difference in that respect.
