Google is making some small tweaks to its paid storage plans. Now that it's offering 15 GB for free, shared between Gmail, Drive and Google+, the smallest 25 GB paid storage plan is going away.
Now, the smallest option
comes with 100 GB, but it's also twice as expensive at $4.99/3.84 EUR a month compared to $2.49/1.92 EUR for the older one. The pricing
remains the same otherwise.
With 15 GB offered for free, few people would have needed the 25 GB plan. However, if you were close or just over the 15 GB limit and you didn't need that much more, it was a good option.
Thankfully, you can still choose the smaller 25 GB plan, for now, at this link
. And if you've been using it so far, Google won't make you upgrade.
In fact, Google isn't even forcing those with the old storage plans, which were significantly cheaper, to update. Before Google Drive became a reality, Google was offering 20 GB for $5/3.85 EUR a year.
