We could be at a time in our life where we store and consume la most multimedia content on our smartphone. Be it series or movies, videos recorded in high resolution and even photographs.

All this obviously consumes internal memory of our device so, unless we have a high-end smartphone with hundreds of GB, we will certainly need an alternative plan, that is hire a cloud service.


There are many cloud services, and virtually all of them perform exceptionally well. However, if you are an Android user, the safest thing is to use Google Drive, not only because it comes pre-installed on Android phones, but also because of its great integration with the rest of Google services.


It is now possible that the GBs offered by Google Drive in its free plan are insufficient for you, so you have decided to pay for more storage. Want to know how to get more Google Drive storage? Keep reading.

How much does it cost to buy more Google Drive space?

Google Drive is one of the best cloud services

Google initially offers 15GB of shared storage between Google Drive, Gmail, and Google Photos. Although for many this amount may be more than enough, it is possible that at some point you will need more space.

Google Drive has several data plans. In addition to the 15GB free plan, we can subscribe to the following plans:

  • 100 GB for € 1,99 per month or € 19,99 per year
  • 200 GB for € 2,99 per month or € 29,99 per year
  • 2 TB for 9,99 euros per month or 99,99 euros per year

As you can see, the annual subscription is much more profitable than the monthly payment, so if you are a regular user of the cloud and more specifically of Google Drive, we recommend that you get the annual plan that best suits your needs.

As we said before, Google Drive is Google's cloud service. It has numerous storage plans depending on the needs of each of the users and the best thing is that switching from one to the other is really simple and can be done at any time.

However, it hasn't been possible for some time buy more storage just for Google Drive. Quiet that we explain below.

We have already said in precedence that GB are distributed between Google Drive, Gmail and Google Photos or that's the same, what the Mountain View company calls Google One.

Google One was built to unify all of Big G's cloud services in one place. But above all, if we were already subscribers to the Google Drive payment service, we will have become part of One with all the advantages that this entails.

How to buy space on Google One

Google Drive, an essential app for all Android users

Once the previous point has been finalized, let's see how to buy space on Google One as it can be done in several ways.

First of all, let's see how to do it through the Google One application itself:

  • We log into our Google account
  • Let's open the Google One application
  • Click on Storage
  • Multiple floors
  • Select the plan we want

We can also dal Google One website:


  • We log into our Google account
  • We go to the Google One website
  • We choose the plan we want

Finally, we can also purchase another storage plan from the app Google Drive itself, although as we said before, this change will be applicable to all Google One services:


  • Let's start the Google Drive application
  • Click Menu and then Settings
  • Acquire more storage space

Now, when you buy a storage plan you have to have several things clear:


Google One is the service that unifies Google's cloud services.

  • We can change the storage plan whenever we want and pay monthly or annually
  • Google One subscriptions don't expire, they automatically renew unless we change the settings
  • It can take up to 24 hours for the changes to take effect

Google One is one of the best cloud services today. Not only does it allow us to have all our documents, files and videos in one safe place, but also all our photos thanks to the fantastic Google Photos application.

Finally, you need to know that each of the payment methods includes the same benefits and the only difference is in the price and amount of space available.
