Two years ago, Google One launched as the company’s integrated backup solution that offers a high level of support, family sharing and various perks. After launching Phone Backup on Android in September, Google is now making that feature free and bringing it to iOS with the new Storage Manager.
Google One’s phone backup covers photos, videos, contacts and calendar events on iOS. For Android, it works automatically and already includes texts, MMS, contacts and applications. It will now be free and will not require an additional monthly / annual subscription as 15GB of storage is available in all Google accounts.
Meanwhile, Google One will be home to a new storage manager for Android and iOS. It is designed for you to manage and clean things you have already stored in Gmail, Google Photos and Drive.
Also available on the web, it provides a quick overview of the storage used, with Google noting how it “only shows files that calculate your current storage limit.”
A “Disapproved Items” and “Large Items” section lets you “review and free” deleted and spam emails as well as deleted drive files in Gmail that have been trashed, but not permanently deleted Huh. Each card allows you to select and delete items individually.
The new Google One for Android features is rolling out now, while the iOS client will be available in the App Store in the coming days.
