Google has said it will notify when other countries are eligible for the One cloud storage.

The upgrade, which the technology giant previewed today, is set to launch under the brand Google One.

Coming to all paying customers of Google's cloud storage service, Google One sees an upgraded offering from 100GB to 30TB if you really, really have a lot of cat pictures to store. US customers will be the first to see the changes, with a global expansion occurring afterwards.

Users of Google Drive's online backup program will still go to drive.google.com to access their files. Currently, the 2TB plans costs $19.99, and in India it is priced at Rs 1300 per month.

Apple offers iOS users 5 GB free via iCloud while anything larger will cost $0.99 for 50 GB, $2.99 for 200 GB, and $9.99 for 2 TB. Customers will get one-tap access to Google's experts who can provide help with the company's other products. Users can also receive extras like Google Play credits and deals on select hotel bookings found in Search. 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.

President Trump clearly understands how important my campaign against Bob Casey is for advancing his agenda through the Senate. Pennsylvania could send at least three women Congress next year, breaking the all-male hold on the state's 18-member U.S.

Google One is slowly rolling out worldwide. According to Pavni, "Everyone gets their own private storage space as well as the additional benefits of Google One". You still get 15GB free to share between Gmail and Drive with every Google account.

Even without the update to Google One, Drive remained one of the best storage options for the average user and corporation alike.

The primary advantages of Google One program are the family sharing and live support. The rollout of upgrades will be confined to the U.S. initially, expanding globally down the line.

The company's $9.99/month 1TB storage plan, which would be obsolete in light of the 2TB plan's price cut, won't be seeing any price tweaks. For more information, you can register to be notified about availability, though more details should be forthcoming via email soon for existing storage subscribers.
