Google One paid storage plans are rolling out now

Now, the company has announced "Google One": a new plan for expanded storage that includes "extra benefits".

In addition to the plan change, the name of Google's paid cloud storage plans is changing from Google Drive to Google One.

"And we'll be adding more benefits over time", Vice President of Google One Pavni Diwani wrote in a blog post. The company also changed its pricing policy.

Nothing changes for the majority of storage plans available; options start at $1.99 for 100 Gigabytes of storage and the price of high end plans that give customers access to 10, 20 or 30 Terabyte of storage does not change either.

The new storage plans offer space ranging between 100TB to 30TB.

One of those perks is access to experts that will help you with Google's other products. Users will also gain access to extras from other Google products such as credits on Google Play or deals on select hotels found in Google Search. Dropbox tends to be the most popular and the company recently unveiled a new EPUB reader for the desktop environment. After Gmail, the firm's cloud-based file storage and synchronization service, Google Drive is the latest to receive an interface overhaul.

The upgrade, which the technology giant previewed today, is set to launch under the brand Google One. With Google One, you can add up to five family members to your plan and simplify storage under one bill.

Even the cheapest plan of 100GB will be eligible for Family Sharing, as confirmed by Google.

Google hopes to bring Google One to free Drive users "later this year". So, if you're not a storage hogger, then the Google One program doesn't matter for you. Additionally, Google One improves upon the Drive experience in another key area: service.

Google One is basically an upgrade to Drive's paid plans, so the fundamentals of the service remain unchanged, but there are a few changes plan along with a new logo.
