What’s the difference between Google One and Google Drive?
Google Drive is a storage service. Google One is a subscription plan that gives you more storage to use across Google Drive, Gmail, and Google Photos. Plus, with Google One, you get extra benefits and can share your membership with your family. How you use Google Drive doesn’t change, so you don’t have to worry about losing or transferring anything.
You can share Google One with up to 5 additional family members at no extra cost (so 6 total, including you). When you create a new family group, you can add or remove other family members.
If you’re already a member of a family group on Google, you can share your Google One plan with the rest of your existing group.
Can My family group see my personal stuff on the drive?
You can share all the benefits of Google One with your family group — without sharing any of your personal files. Family members share the storage space that comes with your Google One plan. But your family group can’t see what you store unless you specifically share it with them from Google Drive, Gmail, or Google Photos.
