Google Account: How to Upgrade your Google Account Storage
When you sign up for a Google account, you get 15GB of free cloud storage to save your data (videos, photos, documents, and so on) across all of Google’s platforms, including Gmail, Google Photos, and Google Drive, where you can store files from Google Docs, Forms, Slides, and Excel, among others. This 15GB of free storage space may appear large at first, but it is only a matter of time before you use it all. If you use Google’s tools frequently for work, you’re likely to run out of storage space quickly.
When your free Google cloud storage expires, you’ll usually receive a warning from Google requesting you to upgrade. If you’ve used up, or are about to use up, your free Google cloud storage, you can upgrade to Google One or buy more storage within Google Drive.
