Google has slashed its cloud based Google Drive storage prices very significantly. Presently all users already get a generous 15GB free but now they can increase their storage to 100GB by paying just $1.99 which was earlier priced at $4.99.
The most significant price cut is in the 1TB tier where the price has been reduced from earlier $49.99 per month to $9.99 per month.
Google Drive storage is shared between Gmail, Google+ Photos and other Google services. Therefore, by paying just under $10 per month, you can now back up all of your important photos, documents and other data. The amount of data that can be stored with 1TB option is like: “to take a selfie twice a day for the next 200 years and still have room left over.”
If your need is more than 1TB then the 10TB options now starts at $99 per month.
With this significant price cut, Google has upped the ante against Dropbox which offer a measly 2GB free and its 100GB option costs $9.99 and the 500GB tier costs $49.99.
This reduction in price changes of Google Drive storage are effective from immediate effect and you can go on to buy your increased Google Drive storage right now.
