What happens when you cancel Google One

  • You'll stop future Google One payments.

  • You’ll lose access to premium subscriptions, like Nest Aware and Fitbit Premium.

If you cancel while you're using more than 15 GB of storage, you'll notice some restrictions. For example:

  • Gmail: You can’t send or receive messages. Messages sent to you are returned to the sender.
  • Google Drive:
    • You can’t sync or upload new files.

    • Until you reduce the amount of storage you use, no one can edit or copy your files.
  • Google Photos: You can’t back up any photos or videos. If you want to add more photos and videos, you can clean up Google storage space or buy more Google storage.
