Big changes are coming to the Google One cloud storage service, including an all-new iOS app, free phone data backups, and a new data management tool on both iOS and Android. You can back up your devices and clean up your files across Google Photos, Google Drive, and Gmail-all in the new Google One app for Android and iOS. The updates are rolling out now to the Android app, and the iOS app will be launched soon. The animated GIF below, shared by the company itself, shows how fast and intuitive the process is. The backup will use up space out of your free 15GB of cloud storage, so it may be hard to back up all your data. Google already offered a paid, automatic phone backup service for Google users, but the feature will now be free for everyone (as long as you live in a country where Google One is offered).

Google has made computerized Android backups free to folks with out Google One plans. Google One is getting a brand new storage supervisor in its app and web site that may each illustrate the way you're utilizing house and provide you with methods to make room by deleting massive information, spam emails and different objects that you simply don't want. If you break, lose, or upgrade your phone, you can rest easy knowing that your data is safe in the cloud. Automatic Android phone backups were introduced a year ago. This is possible because of the Google Play Service's backup manager service which helps you to upload files on the Google drive of the user.

Apart from binding users to the Google ecosystem, making some Google One features free may also have the added effect of increasing the number of Google One subscriptions as some users may hit quota limits. In India, Google One subscription starts at ₹130 per month for 100GB of storage. The extension of new features is only for consumer accounts, and not G Suite business users, Google said in a blog post.
