Google One storage now live in Australia for existing users – with bonus Google Play credit


Google’s new all-in-one storage service for Google Drive, Gmail, and Google Photos – Google One is finally going live in Australia after the service was launched here last month.

Customers who previously paid for additional storage from Google are receiving an email advising their storage account ‘has been officially upgraded to Google One’.

Google One combines the storage of the three services into one simple interface where you can see your online storage in one place. Google One also offers the option to share storage with up to five family members with various storage options ranging from 100GB to 30TB.

The pricing for plans has now been revealed in Australia, with Google One starting at $24.99 for 100GB, and ranging up to $374.99⁄month for 30TB.

As well as offering storage, Google offers additional ‘benefits’ including access to a team of Google experts who can answer any of your questions, including giving help recovering a file you accidentally deleted or teaching you how to use Gmail when you’re offline.

The Google One interface is live on the web now for users, as is the Google One Android app on Google Play. The app is now able to be installed by Australian users and lets you manage your storage plan, contact Google’s team of experts, access member benefits and share your plan with up to 5 family members.

Google One members will also receive bonus offers including ‘credits on Google Play or deals on select hotels found in Google Search’. Google intends to add on more benefits over time as well like deals on the Google Store and more in the coming months.

There’s a bonus in the mailout to Google One customers with the initial offering a $7 credit for use on Google Play available via redemption.

The service is only available to customers who’ve updated their existing Google Drive, Photos or Gmail storage accounts, though Google will begin offering the service to new users soon. If you’re interested in checking it out you can head to the Google One sign up page now.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it. Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

    Uodated what exactly?

    I have 2 accounts which have additional storage, but i am not able to use One.

  • Strange. Why would I go for 10TB? It's 2x the price of the 2TB package per TB.... shouldn't it be either the same price or cheaper per TB?

  • So, my 100GB plan for $25/yr will become... 100GB for $25/yr. Not sure what the point of Google One actually is.

    • I suppose the family sharing would be the main benefit. I use Dropbox but just have top level folders for my wife and I.

      Agree pricing remains poor. I guess Google are saying if you need more than 2tb then you'll pay whatever anyway. Do many services offer a > 2tb option. The 200gb to 2tb gap send pretty poor imo.

    • Every phone gets unlimited free photo uploads with Google Photos. There literally is still no point if that's all you want it for.

      • @Scott Murphy yes but they're compressed photo files. Only the Pixel phones can upload photos at their original size for free, but i think it's for a max of 2 or 3 years!
