Google to Offer Rewards With New Cloud Storage Platform

From PC Mag: A new Google service will offer you more bang for your buck when it comes to cloud storage.

On Monday, the company said its moving paid customers of Google Drive over to an upcoming platform called Google One.

As part of that change, the tech giant will offer a $9.99 per month plan that'll get you 2TB of storage, up from a mere 1TB. The new Google One will also introduce a $2.99 plan for access to 200 GB. (Existing customer of the Google Drive 1TB plan will be upgraded to 2 TB at no extra cost.)

On top of all this, the company plans to reward you for your loyalty; through the new One platform, the tech giant plans on giving subscribers access to "extras," like credits on Google Play or deals on select hotels found in Google Search, with more benefits to be added over time.

Google One is set to arrive in the coming months, but won't affect G Suite business customers. "Thanks to mobile phones, and new file formats like 4K video and high-res photography, people are storing more than ever before," wrote Google One's vice president Pavni Diwanji in a Monday blog post.
