Back in May, Google announced new changes for the consumer version of Google Drive, rebranded as Google One, offering new benefits and family sharing. The initial launch was for the United States, with an international rollout to come later.
Now, it appears Google One has launched in Canada. We just received an email from Google to say “Welcome to Google One” and “Your Google Drive plan has been officially upgraded to Google One. You can now share your storage with your family group, get access to Google experts, and enjoy a few extras.”
Support is available over phone or chat–3-11AM ET, Monday to Friday–and over email 24/7.
Currently, we’re paying for 100 GB of storage from Google and now it’s shared across Drive, Gmail and Photos.
Google says with the debut of Google One, customer service options include access to real humans for support:
Now you have easy access to people who speak fluent Google. If you need help with our products and services, contact our team of experts right from the Google One website.
Google One also means you can now share your storage with family members for free, noting “everyone gets their own space, plus all the benefits of Google One.”
Welcome Perk Offers $7 Google Play Credit
The launch of Google One also comes with a $7 credit to the Google Play Store in our case, which can be applied to movies, games and more. The credit is available until May 31, 2019 and must be redeemed by August 31, 2019.
