Google is bringing its Google One subscription plan to Malaysia, offering more storage at a lower price, storage sharing and expert support.
The plan allows users to upgrade their Google Drive experience, replacing the previous Google Drive subscription plans.
The plans are priced at a monthly rate, at RM8.49 for 100GB, RM11.99 for 200GB, RM42.99 for 2TB, RM429.99 for 10TB, RM859.99 for 20TB and RM1,289.99 for 30TB.
The lower storage plans also come with annual subscriptions at RM84.99 for 100GB and RM119.99 for 200GB.
If users are already subscribed to Google Drive, the subscription will be automatically upgraded to a Google One subscription.
Users will also be able to to share their Google One storage with others, a feature previously only available for Google Drive Enterprise customers.
Though Enterprise customers were charged US$8 (RM32.66) per user, the feature is complimentary for Google One users, though limited to five additional users.
Additional features include access to Google’s Experts for technical support, Google Play credits and special hotel pricing.
The plan was introduced in the United States nine months ago, before being rolled out worldwide on a country-to-country basis.
Google One vice-president Pavni Diwanji said the move was to accommodate mobile phones with limited physical storage, large files from formats like 4K video and high-res photography, and people migrating to the cloud.
