Today Google has made a decision to create a special brand just for its expanded storage options: Google One.

With Google One, the company has upgraded its paid storage plans to enable users to have more space for Google Drive, Gmail, and Google Photos. The 200GB plan appears to be a new option, while that 2TB tier comes in at the same price as the old 1TB Drive plan, which it's replacing. It will also add more versatility for those who opt for the basic free account with 15 GB of storage.

Google (GOOG +0.5%, GOOGL +0.7%) is shifting its consumer storage pricing, slashing the price of a high-volume plan and adding a new lower-end tier. Google said that it will provide the option of sharing storage space with up to five family members at no extra cost, the same number Microsoft Corp. allows with OneDrive in the Home version of Office 365. The company says that it is working to bring the service to more markets later this year. Every Google One subscribers will have access to "Google Experts" for customer support.

Apple customers may upgrade the 5 Gigabytes of free storage that they get to 50 Gigabyte, 200 Gigabyte or 2 Terabyte plans for $0.99, $2.99, or $9.99 respectively. 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. Users will also gain access to extras from other Google products such as credits on Google Play or deals on select hotels found in Google Search.

Google One is Google's new paid storage service. 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. Rather, it will no longer be the label Google puts on the gigabytes or terabytes of storage you share across its platforms.
