The company notes, "If you have a paid Drive storage plan, you'll be automatically upgraded to Google One over the coming months". Based on the announcement, Google One plans will will start at 100GB for $1.99, 200GB for $2.99, and 2TB for $9.99 per month.

With the rebrand to Google One, you'll also be able to share your cloud storage with family members.

A blog post from vice president of Google One, Pavni Diwanji, outlined the benefits of the program, which will be rolling out to USA customers who now pay for Google Drive storage in the coming months. By putting this benefit on the table, Google is addressing its frequently received requests regarding storage plans to be shareable within the family.

Google has announced a revamped plans for its paid cloud service, the Google One Cloud. It will also give "one-tap access to experts" from the company who can help with consumer products and services.

Google hopes to bring Google One to free Drive users "later this year". This storage spans storage across Google apps like Photos, Drive, Docs and Gmail.

That $9.99/month was the price of its 1 TB plan, which is being eliminated.

Clarification: The new Google One subscription will house the files used by several Google services, not the services themselves. Google apparently wants you to entice your family to join One-but without the dread of having to handle the infamous "family support calls" as a result.

Lastly, customers who need more than 100 Gigabytes of space but way less than 2 Terabyte can subscribe to the new 200 Gigabyte plan for $2.99 per month. Each household member also receives their own private storage space. It's unclear exactly what this means, but we'll likely know more soon. For more about cloud storage platforms, PCMag has a guide with recommendations. US customers will be the first to see the changes, with a global expansion occurring afterwards.
