Google One – A premium cloud storage space to replace Google Drive

One simple way to get more out of Google - Google Blog

So, in short, it's a new take on Google's consumer cloud storage, although there's a fair bit more to Google One than it simply being a replacement for Google's existing paid-for plans. So with Google One, you get one-tap access to experts for help with our consumer products and services. Essentially, these sort of vouchers or deals are additional elements to make Google One a better overall value proposition.

The tech giant will upgrade all existing storage plans to Google One accounts starting with the United States and a global rollout will follow.

Google One is the new way you'll buy online storage from Google, taking over from the company's previous Google Drive storage plans. Also, access to extras from other Google products, like credits on Google Play or deals on select hotels found in Google Search. In a sense, it's a paid cloud solution offering expanded storage coupled with "extra benefits".

The new Google One offering will sport plans with storage capacities ranging from 100GB to a whopping 30TB, so no matter how many hefty media files you've got to store, you'll find an option to suit. And lots more benefits to come over time.

It's a new service that all those who now subscribe to Google Drive storage plans will be upgraded to. However, the new plans will be now available on a limited basis, that will start with the US.

No Man's Sky Xbox One release set for July, bringing multiplayer
Xbox One X owners will also receive graphical enhancements when the game launches but no details have been given quite yet. No Man's Sky will debut on Xbox One in late July, adding multiplayer to the game, developer Sean Murray today confirmed .

Google rebranded its cloud storage Google Drive and updated the line of tariffs for its use.

Now the same Google One account can be shared among five family members, each one will get their own private on the cloud storage. There will also be a feature of one-click customer support, accessible across various Google applications. G Suite business customers won't be affected by the change.

The upgrade from Google Drive to Google One will start in U.S., and more countries will be covered over time.

Google does offer live support for a number of their consumer products like the Pixel phone and Home products but we'll have to wait and see to which other products the new Google One support extends. The forum experts are awesome and extremely knowledgeable but I would hope, being a paid platform, that the new Drive support will be 1-on-1 with Google.
