Recently, Google revealed that Google Photos will end its unlimited free backups beginning on June 1, 2021. It also affects Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and other resources as part of cross-service improvements to storage.
On the 10TB, 20TB, and 30TB storage tier plans, the company reported a 50 percent price cut. 10TB of Google One storage was valued at $99.99/month prior to the price cut, but now it costs $49.99/month. Likewise, the 20TB and 30TB plans were priced previously at $199.99/month and $299.99/month, but now cost $99.99/month and $149.99/month, respectively. There’s no way to pay annually for these storage options for a higher discount, unlike other lower storage plans for Google One.
The rates of Google One subscriptions in India are the same as before. The simple 100 GB Google One subscription plan begins at Rs 130 per month in India (Rs 1,300 annually). The top-end Google One plans also offer a 10 percent cashback on Google Store transactions to users in the US, Canada, UK, Germany, and Australia.
When free storage of 15GB on the account has been used, the company will start charging. In addition, those who choose to add images above the 15GB cap will be forced to purchase a plan for Google One to continue to use Google services. Google does not provide any discounts on storage plans of 100 GB, 200 GB, and 2 TB that provide advantages, including dedicated support and family sharing.
Google One users also get additional benefits, with all levels of 2TB and above eligible for a free VPN (currently available on Android in the US and soon coming to other regions and operating systems), as well as 10% cashback on hardware purchases from the Google Store, and hotel deals (slightly randomly).
In addition, Google has confirmed that on iOS devices, the Google One app is now now available and can be used to back up photos, calendars, contacts, and more.
