Google is sending $5 Play credits to some users prematurely invited to Google One

The rollout of Google One was complicated. The service was announced and the app made available for download in May. Emails went out saying that the service was available to everyone in the US in the middle of August, but that still wasn't the case by the end of the month.

Google One will expand to Argentina, Australia, Brazil, and Mexico in the coming weeks, more regions later

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.

[Update: Still waiting] Google One is open to everybody in the US starting today

Google One, Google's new cloud storage management and product support service, has had a strangely protracted rollout. It was announced all the way back in May, and showed up on the Play Store shortly thereafter. It wasn't long until invites started going out to a select few, but now, in mid-August, some users still don't have access to it. That's changing, though, as Google has announced that "people in the U.S. can choose to upgrade to Google One" starting today.

A few weeks ago, it became clear that Google+ is headed toward a pretty major overhaul to the post editor that would bring support for new formatting and styling options for text.

[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. For some, the combination of those two services isn't working as expected when it comes to Motion Photos, and backup synchronization to a desktop fails for those MVIMG-labeled images.
