Buy more Google storage

Your Google Account starts with 15 GB of free storage to use across Google Drive, Gmail and Google Photos. You can buy more storage within Google Drive or upgrade to Google One to get extra benefits.  

Storage subscriptions

  • At any time, you can change your storage plan to either a monthly or annual fee.
  • A Google One subscription doesn’t expire – it’ll renew automatically unless you change your settings.
  • When you switch to a different payment schedule, it can take up to 24 hours for these changes to take effect. 
  • You may be charged local taxes or fees in addition to the prices listed. Google doesn't charge extra fees.
  • Buying Google storage is only available in some countries. Find countries where you can buy storage.

You can get extra storage for your Google products.

If you already pay for a Drive plan, you'll be automatically upgraded to Google One for free. Learn more about how your existing storage works with Google One.

If you don't have a Drive plan, you can become a Google One member to get more storage, help from experts and extra member benefits.
