Google One will soon land in India, meaning that users there have access to the revamped cloud storage experience that works across Google's services like Gmail and Photos. There is a price option to suit anyone's needs, whether that be some extra space to store pictures or a couple terabytes to keep everything backed up. Read More
It can be inconvenient to keep all your media stored locally, and there are plenty of cloud services that will save a few terabytes of data for a low monthly fee. Plex Cloud was designed to take advantage of that, offering a cloud-based server connection to stream your media. However, after pausing sign-ups earlier this year, Plex has announced the service will end on November 30th. Read More
When Google announces that a feature is rolling out to everyone, it should probably follow that up with a huge asterisk and footprint to clarify that it doesn't mean everyone, everyone, just most people, minus a few exceptions, and some more exceptions, and even more exceptions. That's the case with Google One, the company's unified cloud storage solution that was said to be available to "everyone in the US" more than two weeks ago. Not so surprisingly, a lot of users haven't received it yet because of multiple reasons, the most important of which is their promotional Drive storage. Read More
Google One's launch has been fraught with delays and pseudo-announcements. The unifying storage service was introduced in May, but only select users got invited to try it out, then Google re-announced it again a few weeks ago, saying it was available to everyone in the US.

Now comes the news that One is finally stepping outside the borders of the USA and going south to Mexico, Brazil, and Argentina, then sailing across the Pacific to Australia. Read More
You might recall the Google One announcement from a few months ago. Google's new storage plans are an even better deal than they once were with 2TB for $20 per month. That made Dropbox look a little behind the times with its 1TB offering. Today, Dropbox is catching up, at least in terms of total storage. The "Pro" monthly plan is moving from 1TB to 2TB, matching Google One.
Dropbox might be running behind Google Drive when it comes to storage, but there's a mobile app update rolling out with some handy new features. Today kicks off the changes, but not all the new features will be available right away. Read More
Google Drive doesn't break the bank when it comes to storage. For a mere $20 a year, you can add 100 GB to your combined Google service data pool and apply that space to anything from Google Photos to overly-large emails. And now Google is making things a bit more clear when it comes to the subject of storage for its various services. The new Google One replaces all non-G Suite business Google Drive storage plans with a wider variety of storage options, some at an improved value. Read More
