Why Google One is Google's Amazon Prime

"With Google One you get one-tap access to experts for help with our consumer products and services". You now get 2TB for the same $9.99 monthly price. However, Microsoft does not provide the option to modify storage and does not include plans for over 1TB of storage. So, if you're paying for a subscription every month, you'll be able to add up to five family members to your plan.

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

The more generous storage options will be handy for people shooting lots of photos and 4K video who want to save the full-quality versions in Photos.

Over the next few months, starting in the U.S., all paid consumer Google Drive storage plans will become Google One plans, Google announced Monday.

As Google did when it rolled out its early Chromecasts, One members will also be able to take advantage of discounts, from Google Play credits to hotel deals.

There have been 24 recorded outbreaks in west and central Africa, including in DRC, Uganda, Sudan and Gabon, the BBC report added. It was tested in Guinea in 2015 during an Ebola epidemic that killed more than 11,300 people in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia.

Now those paid storage plans are covered under a new "Google One" moniker, with more flexible pricing.

These changes make Google's offering closer to Apple's in price. iCloud storage starts at 50GB for 99 cents a month, 200GB is $2.99, and 2TB is $9.99.

Google hopes to bring Google One to free Drive users "later this year". Plus, you might only need a single subscription for your family.

Google One is a consumer service, and the change won't affect G Suite customers.

For now, Google is moving slowly, rolling out Google One in the US over the next few months, and globally after that. From personal document storage to servers ranging from small business to corporations, Google has the utility and experience to provide a significant amount of free storage to users around the world - and Google One expands that even further.
