Google announced today that it is slashing prices for its cloud storage service.
Having launched Google Drive just two years ago, we’re excited that so many people are now using it as their go-to place for keeping all their files. Whether it's all the footage of your kids' baseball games, the novel you're working on, or even just your grocery list for the week, we all have files that are too important to lose. Today, thanks to a number of recent infrastructure improvements, we’re able to make it more affordable for you to keep everything safe and easy to reach on any device, from anywhere.For just $1.99 per month, users can have up to 100GB of storage through Google Drive. The 1TB plan takes a huge price drop – from $49.99 per month to just $9.99 per month. If you’re a storage hog, the 10TB plan is now $99.99 per month. As usual, the 15GB plan remains free. The storage works across Drive, Gmail, and Google+ Photos. Users can sign up for one of the new plans through Google’s site here. If you’re already paying for Google Drive storage, you’ll automatically be moved to the cheaper plans. Google Drive is a universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini. It can be downloaded now on the App Store for free. The last major update to the iOS app arrived back in December. Version 2.2 allows users to sort files by title or when they were last opened and find and replace in Documents.
