Google, which recently rebranded its Google Drive storage plans with Google One, is planning to launch the repackaged cloud storage subscription plan in India soon.
Launched in May this year, Google is gradually expanding the service in different parts of the world.
The newly launched data storage service will provide storage plans ranging from 100 GB to 30 TB. Besides, it also provides options to share your storage with up to five family members.
Google One will also offer other benefits such as one-tap access to experts for help across Google’s consumer products and services.
The company, however, will initially offer the service on a limited basis, opening the service for customers who already have an existing paid Drive storage plan and will be automatically upgraded to Google One subscription over the next few weeks.
Though Google hasn’t disclosed the pricing for India, it is considered that it will be quite cheaper from previous plans.
In the US, it is improving its pricing in ways that give customers additional options and more storage at lower prices. Its plans start at price point of Google Drive plans — $1.99 per month for 100GB of additional storage — but the pricing and offering proportion improves after that.
The tech giant is introducing a new $2.99-per-month tier, which includes 200GB of storage, and it’s upgrading the $9.99-per-month tier to include 2TB of storage instead of 1TB.
In the past few years, Google has increased its focus on the Indian market. From offering free Wi-Fi service at public places to launching payment platform in the country, the tech giant now very well understands the potential of the Indian market.
