Google will reportedly revamp News with video and speed tweaks

  Google will reportedly revamp News with video and speed tweaks The company may be adding Play Newsstand and YouTube features.The revamp will consolidate Google's various news services -- Play Newsstand is likely to close as part of the move, with Google News getting a new app. The rework will add YouTube's news section and incorporate the AMP technology Google uses to load pages faster on mobile.

Google will also make the plan shareable within a family of up to five members, and give users access to live chat support even if you’re on the cheapest plan of .99 a month for 100GB. Google One is an upgrade to Drive’s paid plans , not a rebranding of the storage service.

I tested it with G Drive a long time ago and had two PCs with one PC backing up and the other PC downloading the results to restore them. Folder properties shows a different restored result with the cloud result matching the restore. Google said I should unlink and relink.

Google is rolling out new changes to its storage plans that include a new, low-cost storage plan and half off the price of its 2TB storage option, the company announced today. It’s also converting all Google Drive paid storage plans to Google One, perhaps in part because you’ll now have one-tap access to Google’s live customer service.

Google One will get a new $2.99 a month option that gets you 200GB of storage. The 2TB plan, which usually costs $19.99 per month, will now cost $9.99 a month. Finally, the 1TB plan that costs $9.99 a month is getting removed. The other plans for 10, 20, or 30TB won’t see any changes.
