There’s a growing list of apps that have surpassed a billion downloads, and Google One is the next one to join the club, according to 9To5Google. This is the search giant’s cloud storage platform.

Google One was downloaded a billion times

Joining the ranks is Google One. This is the company’s cloud storage platform. It should come as no surprise that Google One surpassed a billion downloads. It’s a staple for every Google account owner, as every account gets automatic storage. When you make a Google account, you start off with 15GB of cloud storage for free. That’s enough to get most people started off on the right foot. This also applies to Google Photos storage.

If you want to access more storage, you can pay a monthly or yearly subscription fee for it.  Google One encompasses all of Google’s services including Google Drive, Gmail, Google Photos, Google Photos, and Google Docs/Sheets/Slides. Getting a subscription will give you more storage for all of those products.
