Google on Monday announced a brand new product, Google One. Well, it’s actually an old product which is getting its own new name — Google One is a lot catchier — and cheaper pricing options.
That’s right, we’re looking at a rebranding of the Google Drive cloud storage product that was already available to consumers. All existing customers will be moved to the new product later this year.
Google One is supposed to be “a simple plan for expanded storage that includes extra benefits to help you get more out of Google.” In practice, the extra cloud storage will be used exactly as it is now, for Gmail, Google Drive, and Photos. It’s just the branding that changes, and Google is adding a few extra perks for customers.
