Have you ever thought what if one day you stop receiving emails or there isn’t enough space for the automatic backup of your documents, photos, and videos onto your Google account? If no, then you should definitely consider it because your personal Gmail account comes with a limited storage space of just 15GB. Once the allotted storage is full, you will no longer be able to get the benefits of Google services. Even the fact that Google Photos free storage is about to end on June 01 would compel you to weigh your options.

Well, don’t worry. Google does offer additional storage space under its Google One plans. There are a few different tiers and you can choose one based on your requirement.

Here, we will be discussing Google One, its available plans in India, and how to buy the one that suits you the best.

What is Google One

Google spun out Google One service out of Google Drive back in August 2018. This new service was now aimed at offering additional cloud storage to its customers at a premium. This storage spans across company’s varied products including Gmail, Google Drive, and Google Photos.

Google One Subscription Plans and Features

A personal Gmail account comes with a free storage space of 15GB while Google offers 30GB of free space for business accounts. For extra space, you have to opt for Google One.

The Google One subscription starts from Rs. 130 per month and goes up to Rs. 650 per month. In terms of storage space, the base plan offers 100GB while the uppermost plan lets you enjoy 1TB of storage.

They include access to Google experts to get help with the various Google products, add up to 5 family members to the plan, and separate allocation of space for each member with extra benefits.
