There is no shortage of places to store your ebook collection, so you can access it on your e-reader, smartphone or tablet. Dropbox tends to be the most popular and the company recently unveiled a new EPUB reader for the desktop environment. Google recently changed the pricing on their cloud storage and will be introducing a new tier for Google Drive.
Google One was just unveiled today and it is an update to the old Google Drives paid plans. The entry level package costs $2.99 per month and will provide you with 200GB of storage. The 2TB plan, which usually costs $19.99 per month, will now cost $9.99 a month. If you want to use Google One without paying at all, the company will still offer Drive’s basic 15GB of free space option.
If you have a paid Drive storage plan, you’ll be upgraded to Google One automatically over the coming months, starting in the U.S. and then expanding globally. Look out for an email confirming your upgrade to Google One, where you can manage your storage plan and benefits. The way you use Drive to store and share files doesn’t change.
Dropbox only provides users with 2GB of space for free accounts and Microsoft Onedrive provides 5GB. Google is giving a whopping 15GB of free storage, which is enough to house your audiobook, ebook and PDF collections.
