Google One to Backup iOS and Android for Free

PARIS, FRANCE - OCTOBER 23: In this photo illustration, the logos of the applications, Google Maps, Google and Gmail are displayed on the screen of a tablet on October 23, 2018 in Paris, France. After being fined 4.3 billion euros last June for a dominant position in research with its Android mobile operating system, Google has decided to comply by charging for its applications and Play Store to manufacturers who want to sell their mobile devices in Europe, and this without integrating Google Search and Google Chrome. From October 29, Google will implement a fairly complex license system for manufacturers who sell Android-powered mobile devices in Europe and want to install the Play Store and its other applications.

Google cloud storage device, Google One will be backing up iOS and Android Devices for free with your Google account

The iOS app will be able to back up your photos, videos, contacts, and calendar events, thus combining Photos and Drive in one place. While the Android app which can backups a lot of files, on the other hand, will now offer backups without a Google One membership.

Asides from the above, Google One is also being updated to make it easier to manage the files that are stored. The storage management feature is available on the app or the web.  It will let you manage files saved from Drive, Gmail, and Photos in one place.

Interestingly, you can get 15GB of storage for free with your personal Google Account (G Suite accounts).

Note that G-Suite accounts are not supported by the new features. So Google is offering paid storage plans that start at $1.99 (#772.00) a month for 100GB of storage.

According to Google, the new features will be rolling out for Android in the coming days, adding that the new iOS is launching soon. You can find the list of countries where Google One is here
