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?
