CEO of Google Sundar Pichai announced on Friday that his company has logged 100 million subscriptions to Google One, its all-in-one subscription service that unlocks additional storage space for free services like Gmail, Drive and Photos, as well as access to more features.
The company had said it was close to the $100 million mark when it reported fourth-quarter results last month and revealed the billions it had spent on layoffs and noted it again last week when of launching an AI Premium plan level.
The new AI plan is similar to the existing $100-per-year Google One Premium plan, which includes 2TB of storage and other features like VPN and Dark Web monitoring, except it's twice as much Dear. It gives users access to a beefed-up version of Gemini, the new name for its Bard chatbot, and will soon add access to these generative AI features in services like Gmail and Docs.
According to Google's troubleshooting section support page for AI Premium registrations, users cannot subscribe to the AI Premium plan through Apple App Store payments, so to subscribe, you must first cancel this plan. Additionally, it cannot be shared between family groups.
Correction on February 10, 2024, 7:44 p.m. ET: This article previously said the standard Google One Premium plan was $100 per month, but should have said per year. This has been fixed. We regret the error.
