Earlier this year, Google introduced ‘Google One’, its new subscription-based storage offering some extra benefits. At that time, the company had said that all paid Google Drive customers would eventually be migrated to Google One. Having opened the service to all customers in the United States last month, the company has now announced that it’ll be launching Google One in India soon.

“Users in India will soon be able to enjoy more options to fit their storage needs – whether you’re working, connecting with friends or preserving your memories,” reads the announcement post on the official Google India blog.

Google One gives users more storage across a variety of Google services, such as Drive, Gmail, and Photos. In addition to upgrading previous plans, the company also has some new options, featuring storage from 100GB to 30TB.

Customers who subscribe to the paid cloud-storage service will have a team of Google experts to answer all their questions, as well as help them in troubleshooting any issues they might have when using the service. There’s no definite date as to when Google One will arrive in India, but existing customers using paid Google Drive plans will be upgraded to Google One in the coming weeks.

It seems that Google is on a visual overhaul spree these days, updating everything from its browsers to apps with new design. The latest Google product to get the new UI refresh is the stock Calculator app.

According to a recent report by Android Police, the upcoming version 7.5 of Google Calculator introduces a new ‘Material Theme’ design to the lightweight calculation app, bringing it in line with other recently-updated products and services like Gmail and Chrome. That said, the changes are only in the visuals, and the functionality remains the same.
