Google Drive is one of the most popular cloud storage and file sharing platforms in the world, with over 1 billion users.
But how much does it cost to use Google Drive in Australia, and what are the benefits of upgrading to a paid plan?
In this blog post, we will answer these questions and help you decide which Google Drive plan is right for you.
What is Google Drive?
Google Drive offers 15 GB of free storage for every Google account, which you can use to store your files, photos, videos, and documents. You can also access Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, and other productivity apps for free. However, if you need more storage space or additional features, you can upgrade to a Google One plan.
