It will be more useful for people who pay for Google One – the basic membership plan includes 100 GB of storage for $ 2 a month, which is enough to make Drive, Photo and Phone backups much more workable. But whether you pay for Google One or not, it doesn’t hurt to have another option to back up your phone. As before, paid Google One memberships include a store that you can share with up to five other family members, live customer support, and various benefits (right now, you can get 10% back in the store credit from the Google Store).
The new Google One for iOS will also include a storage manager, making it much easier to clean up various data that could store storage. It’s already available on the web, but given how we all currently rely on our phones, it’s smart to have it available in the app as well. New features for free users will be available on Android through the Play store “in the coming days,” while the Google One iOS app will be “available soon.”
