Google One is Google’s consumer subscription service that offers expanded cloud storage with a low starting price of $1.99 per month.

Every Google Account starts with 15 gigabytes of free storage that is shared across Google Drive, Gmail, and Google Photos, and for $1.99 users are able to boost this to 100 GB of storage, maxing out at 2 Terabytes for $9.99.

Today Google announced a new value-add, offering automatic phone backup for Android users to Google One.

With automatic phone backup by Google One, besides the usual texts, contacts, and apps, you’ll also be able to back up original quality photos, videos, and multimedia messages (MMS), and you can manage your backups directly from the Google One app. When you set up your next Android phone, everything you care about can be easily restored.

If that sounds like a good idea, you can sign up for Google One at Google here.
