How to Upgrade Google One Storage [Plans & Pricing]

Written By Rawnak Islam Rumi

Let’s be honest, the free 15GB Google Drive storage is barely enough to store our necessary files & documents. On the flip side, your lower-tier Google One plan might not be providing enough storage for your work or personal needs.

No matter the cause, upgrading your Google One storage plan according to your needs will give enough stretch to your cloud storage to save all your necessary files. These higher-tier plans also offer various features & have variable pricing.upgrade-google-one-storage

The pricing of all these plans may vary depending on the region or discounts provided by Google. You might also see the pricing in your local currency instead of in dollars.

Note: You’ll need to have a personal account in order to upgrade or subscribe to Google One plans. Workspace accounts, such as student accounts, can not be used to access Google One.

Can’t Upgrade Google One Storage Plan

I have seen some reports on Reddit and Quora that certain users can’t find the option to upgrade or even downgrade their current Google One subscription plan. This issue is primarily prevalent for both iOS and Android users.

If you’re using an iPhone or Mac and can’t find the upgrade option, you need to upgrade your Google One plan via Apple Cloud. You can also use a browser on your laptop and go to Then log in to your Google account and choose the upgrade plan from there.

Furthermore, it might depend on where you purchased the subscription. If you’ve used an iPhone, for instance, you need to upgrade your plan from the AppStore > your profile picture > your subscriptions.

Then find Google One and tap on View all plans. From there, choose a higher-tier plan with more storage.

The same applies to Android users. Go to your device’s PlayStore and find your current subscription plan to upgrade.
