You’ll still use Drive to store and share files.
Google One will soon be the cloud storage system users will visit to monitor and purchase data, replacing Google Drive. This doesn’t mean Google Drive is extinct. Rather, it will no longer be the label Google puts on the gigabytes or terabytes of storage you share across its platforms. Drive still plays an important role in Google’s cloud storage ecosystem for storing and synchronizing files, alongside Photos and Gmail.
There are a few other important changes coming with the rebrand. With One, Google is keeping the free 15GB of storage it offers anyone with a Google account, but the price of the 2TB plan has been slashed in half to $10, replacing the previous 1TB option. There is also a new 200GB storage plan for $3.00 for those needing to store a few more videos and photos after their free space fills up.
Here are all of the storage options under Google One.
100GB for $2.00 a month
200GB for $3.00 a month (new with Google One)
2TB for $10.00 a month (half the previous price)
10TB for $100.00 a month
20TB for $200.00 a month
30TB for $300.00 a month
Other perks coming with Google One include “one-tap access” to experts for help with Google products and services, the ability to add five family members to a shared cloud storage plan, and credits on Google Play or deals on select hotels found in Google Search.

If you currently pay for Google Drive, you might be wondering what happens next. For most people, not much. Google says it will upgrade all paid Drive storage plans to Google One automatically. If you fit that description, you’ll gain all the aforementioned benefits and have the option to adjust your plan based on the new pricing tiers.
Unfortunately, these perks won’t be made available immediately. Google says it will roll out the new service over the coming months, first in the U.S. then globally. Google will also release an app alongside the new service where you can manage and buy storage.
