Google Drive now offers cheaper storage: $1.99 for 100GB, $9.99 for 1TB

Google Drive just got a lot more appealing. The company has dropped the prices for its online storage service, with price cuts across all options. The free tier still starts at 15GB, but now users can upgrade to 100GB for $1.99 per month instead of the previous $4.99. The 1TB got the most significant drop, now priced at $9.99 per month instead of $49.99. There’s also a $99.99 option available with 10TB of storage, and more available if you need it.

Dropbox currently charges $9.99 for only 100GB of storage and 500GB at $49.99. With integrated Drive Apps, Google’s now cheaper offering is a lot more compelling. Dropbox arguably has an edge in terms of third-party app support, though it wouldn’t be surprising if they countered Google’s move.

    [@Ashraf] From my experience with iOS apps, I’ve run into a lot of apps that support back-ups or other features via Dropbox and not Google Drive. I almost made a Dropbox account because of that but this price drop might have just sealed the deal for me with Drive. That and even if I did use Dropbox instead, I’d still use Docs so might as well have them in the same place :)

    “Dropbox arguably has an edge in terms of third-party app support” — I’m not sure I agree with that. Google Drive is essentially Google Docs, and Docs has had a lot of third-party app support. Nonetheless, even if the statement holds true, the fact that Google is selling storage significantly cheaper than Dropbox makes Dropbox significantly less attractive. I’m not sure if Dropbox CAN counter the move: they don’t have the resources of Google.

    Let’s see what happens.
