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.
