Earlier today Google announced Google One, described as "one simple way to get more out of Google". In short, I feel it is a re-branding of Google's data storage plans. Similar to iCloud, Google One is a streamlined, lump sum sale on storing Gmail, Google Photos, Google Contacts, documents, Android phone backups, and more, but with cheaper pricing. Google One plans will start at 100 GB for $1.99, 200 GB for $2.99, and 2 TB for $9.99 per month. Pricing for plans larger than 2TB will remain the same (Existing 1 TB Drive plans will be upgraded to 2 TB at no extra cost). This is great, but Google should up the ante.
Google One, one secure and simple way to get all of GoogleImagine if you can subscribe to all of Google's apps and services for $20 a month with full data-encryption and a completely ad-free experience. I believe this would end the debate on privacy and security within the Google ecosystem. It could also clean up the web and change the whole dynamic on web currency. Recently, Google had a service that would remove ads from web pages for subscribers. For the life of me, I can't think of the service, but it existed. I know I would subscribe to this service. However, there's another opportunity that Google could capitalize with this: Google Pixel with Google One. With the purchase of the latest Pixel phone by Google, customers will have a free or highly discounted rate on Google One! Not only will that entice users to purchase a Pixel, which is already an amazing phone, but they will gain peace of mind on privacy as well. This is just a thought, and Google may never do this, but what do you think? Would you pay for this sort of "Google One" subscription service?
