Google announced some new storage plans for Google Drive, saying it can now make them more affordable thanks to a number of recent infrastructure improvements.
The new pricing is as follows:
It used to be $4.99 for the 100GB plan and $49.99 for the 1TB plan.
Director of Product Management Scott Johnston writes, "How big is a terabyte anyway? Well, 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. Like before, storage continues to work across Drive, Gmail and Google+ Photos. And, of course, the 15GB plan remains free."
"Having launched Google Drive just two years ago, we’re excited that so many people are now using it as their go-to place for keeping all their files. Whether it's all the footage of your kids' baseball games, the novel you're working on, or even just your grocery list for the week, we all have files that are too important to lose," he says.
In semi-related news, Google Drive also got add-ons for Docs and Sheets this week. You can check out some of those here.
