Deal alert: Google Drive slashes storage rates to ridiculously low prices

New Google Drive storage plans

Google announced today that it’s slashing prices for cloud storage to ridiculously low rates: 15GB remains the free quota available to everyone with a Google account, but now 100GB plans are only $1.99/month (formerly $4.99/month), and 1TB plans are now only $9.99/month (formerly $49.99/month). Remember, 1TB is equal to 1024GB. Or, as Google reminder us, “…that’s enough storage for you to take a selfie twice a day for the next 200 years and still have room left over for… shall we say… less important things.”

Google Drive storage is shared between files stored in Drive, Gmail, and Google+ Photos, although Google doesn’t count photos in Google+ that are 2048×2048 or smaller against your quota. For those of you who need even more than 1TB, 10TB plans and higher start at $99.99/month.

If you pay for storage already, Google says you’ll automatically get a better plan at no additional cost to you.

I’m really excited about this, hope that this will get more people to jump on the Google Drive bandwagon – it is so much better than SkyDrive OneDrive or DropBox, after all. Are you as excited about these new plans as I am?

    Anyone know if there are plans to integrate Drive with Play Music? That would be pretty sweet.

    • Why would you want to? Just for drag & drop functionality?

      Honest question. I can’t think of a reason you’d need it except maybe to get rid of musicmanager and integrate it into Drive Sync

      • -Ability to upload music using Chrome OS
        -Ability to download individual tracks as many times as you want

        Those are two VERY big reasons…

        • So a feature that’s about to be deployed via drag and drop web interface or Chrome OS app according to what I can find, and insane amounts of piracy?

          • Also, for people with huge music collections (over 20k songs), it would be nice to use their Google Drive storage to add additional songs to Google Play Music.

            It would basically just create a much more cohesive unified experience across products. :-)
