There are many ways to backup your phone and Google Drive is one of them. However, if you need more storage than what Google Drive has to offer by default, then you might want to check out Google One. This is because in an announcement by Google, it seems that Google One plans will now include automatic phone backups.
According to Google, “We’ve taken the standard Android backup (that includes texts, contacts, and apps) and we’re giving you even more. With automatic phone backup by Google One, 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.”
For those who are unfamiliar with Google One, this is basically the paid version of Google’s cloud storage service. Users who aren’t satisfied with the base storage offered in Google Drive can opt to pay a monthly subscription where they’ll be able to upgrade their storage. Now that it offers the ability to backup your Android phone, you might want to take advantage of it in the event you ever lose your device and need to restore it.
Subscribers to Google One can choose from 100GB of storage which will be priced at $1.99 a month, 200GB for $2.99 a month, or 2TB for $9.99 a month.
