This new initiative is more than a month after Google announced the termination of free unlimited backups through Google Photos to encourage users to purchase the Google One plan. The search giant has also set a storage limit of 15GB for Google Docs, spreadsheets, slides, engineering drawings, spreadsheets and Jamboard files to encourage people to buy its paid cloud storage plans.

Now this is the cost of the 20TB plan. The previous price was US$199.99 per month. (About Rs 14,700). Similarly, the 30TB plan has dropped from US$299.99 (approximately Rs 22,000) to US$199.99 per month.
