[Update: Going live] Google One app arrives on the Play Store, but the service isn't live just yet [APK Download]

Google recently announced that it was replacing its current non G-Suite Google Drive storage plans with a new pricing structure called Google One. All your stuff will stay in Drive and other Google products as before, but you might get to pay slightly less depending on how much space you need.

Google One cloud storage announced - offers twice the capacity of Dropbox Pro for $10/month

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.

[Update: Google is working on a fix] Downloading Motion Photos via Google's Backup and Sync is broken for some

For many people, especially those of us here at Android Police, Google's various backup tools are an integral part of our daily workflow. Frankly, I'd have to entirely restructure how I do things without the convenience of Google Photos and Google Drive/Backup and Sync.

Google Drive is getting AI-powered organization for shared files

Google Drive tends to pick up a lot of shared files, especially if your place of business uses G Suite. The "Shared with Me" section can end up rather messy as a result, but Google is now looking to clean it up with the help of artificial intelligence.

Google Drive File Stream update adds bandwidth limit settings, sync pause, and more

The Google Drive desktop client isn't very great (at least on Windows), and if you want to access a file, it has to be stored on your computer at all times. Google announced a new client called 'Drive File Stream' last year, which adds all your files to your computer, but only downloads the data when you want to open something (similar to OneDrive on Windows 8). Unfortunately, Drive File Stream is only available to G Suite users, so us normal people can't try it out.
