Google One has announced a VPN by Google One for subscribers with a 2TB or higher plan. The free Google VPN addon will roll out for Android, iOS, Windows 10 as well as Mac.
The company is also adding Pro Sessions for 2TB+ plan holders. These sessions will let members have a one-on-one interaction with Google experts on how to better use Google products, including Google One membership. This service is rolling out for users in the U.K, the U.S., and Canada.
The catch here is that you can’t add the Google VPN to 100 or 200GB plans which start at $1.99/month. To use this service, you’ll need a 2TB or higher plan, which starts at $9.99/month and goes all the way up to $299.99/month for the 30TB plan.
VPN By Google One
If you have a Google One plan, a VPN is the cherry on the cake. A virtual private network or VPN is an additional safeguard against data theft and online tracking. You can check our list of top 10 VPN services in 2020. We also have a list of 6 factors you must consider while choosing a VPN.
Talking about VPN by Google One, it’ll roll out for the users in the U.S. first and then in other countries. There are two key features I like about the new service already. First, it’ll be available for iOS, Windows, and Mac so you can use it from any device. Secondly, you can share the VPN with family members the same way you can share Google One.
What’s Google One?
Google One is a premium storage plan from Google, which has some other benefits too. Starting from 100 GB, the plans go all the way up to 30TB. Usually, Google gives you 15GB free storage and unlimited high-quality photo storage via Google Photos. However, you can backup your pictures in uncompressed original resolution without worrying about running out of space if you have a Google One plan.
Aside from the storage, Google One gives you direct access to Google experts if you need help using Google services. Another good thing here is that you can share this plan with your family. You can add up to 5 additional family members and give them additional Google Drive storage. With the added VPN, it makes the higher tier plans a better offering.
