Do you know how much your phone is truly capable of? Our modern phones are everything we want them to be. An office, a business, a store, an entertainment tool, a professional camera, a storage device and what they were originally intended to be - a simple phone. With additional services like Google one you can unleash the full potential of your mobile device with just a few taps.
In this day and age, nearly every man woman and child carries a smartphone with them at all times. Our devices have become an integral part of our day to day lives; they keep us in touch with our loved ones, act as a camera when taking pictures or video, and is ultimately a supercomputer in the palm of our hands.
Luckily, I found an app that will help to keep all the files on my phone organized as well as save me a ton of space. Now, I don't have to worry about sorting through files and pictures to see what I have to delete to make room.
Although you can download Google One and receive 100GB of free space on your phone, there are selections for 1T and 2T options if you need more space than that.
I love that the app doesn't force me to spend money to expand the space on my device, I can easily download the app for free and see if the 100GB will be enough. If it is, then I don't have to worry about purchasing a different subscription option. However, if I do still run into the problem of not having enough space for new files, then I can always choose to purchase more space from the app.
One of my favorite features of the Google One app is having the ability to share all the space I'm saving on my device with the members of my family. You can share the space you purchase through the app with up to five other people, which means you won't have to worry about downloading Google One onto multiple devices.
Having the ability to share your space means that everyone will easily be able to organize the files on their personal device, without having to delete anything to make space.
If you ask me, Google has far too many options for consumers. Sure, I love being able to keep all of my files, pictures, and videos secure and organized, but it seems that all of Google's apps are related to the same thing, making it rather difficult to figure out how each individual service is meant to function.
I assumed when I started using Google One that it would be fairly straightforward with controls and navigation, but I found myself confused with what the difference between Google Photos, Google Files, and other Google products was.
At the end of the day, I enjoy having the freedom to keep taking pictures and videos of my family without having to worry about deleting precious moments because of not having enough room on a device.
My only complaint about the app is that it isn't very clear on how to use it. It also seems as though Google ropes you into downloading the app with promises of free space, only to bombard you with requests to spend your hard earned money once you start using the service.
It seems to me that Google is trying to manipulate customers into spending far more money than is necessary by promising them free products and then tricking them into spending money once they've downloaded their product.
Although I think Google is one of the best things since sliced bread, I can't stand companies that try to cheat people out of their money. Overall, I would say to treat any purchases in Google One as a buyer beware situation.
