Google says that Drive storage will flip over to One storage automatically "over the coming months". Thanks to mobile phones, and new file formats like 4K video and high-res photography, people are storing more than ever before. Each family member will get their own storage silo within your pool of paid Google One storage.

Google storage plans apply to multiple services across Google's cloud. If you're on the plan, you'll get things like Google Play credit, deals on select hotels found in Google Search, and more.

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.

Google says it will be upgrading all of its paid consumer Google Drive plans to Google One over the next few months, starting in the U.S. and rolling out globally.

Google One will offer plans with up to 30 TB per month, and pricing for plans larger than 2 TB will remain the same (30 TB will cost you $299.99 per month).

Google One will also give subscribers access to perks. Plus, you might only need a single subscription for your family. There's no change in functionality, but some icons and buttons have moved, and there's a range of visual tweaks to align with Google's latest material design principles. Google will offer storage up to 30TB and Google says that users with an existing 1 TB Drive plans will be upgraded to 2 TB at no extra cost. "And we'll be adding more benefits over time", Diwanji promised. 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. The internet giant is revamping its cloud storage platform with new storage plans and a host of new features.
