Google will reportedly revamp News with video and speed tweaks

  Google will reportedly revamp News with video and speed tweaks The company may be adding Play Newsstand and YouTube features.The revamp will consolidate Google's various news services -- Play Newsstand is likely to close as part of the move, with Google News getting a new app. The rework will add YouTube's news section and incorporate the AMP technology Google uses to load pages faster on mobile.

Google will also make the plan shareable within a family of up to five members, and give users access to live chat support even if you’re on the cheapest plan of .99 a month for 100GB. Google One is an upgrade to Drive’s paid plans , not a rebranding of the storage service.

However, if you are dealing with sensitive data then a paid cheap online storage is probably the best approach. Its basic plan starts at .99 per month and gives 50 GB. The One Drive’s basic plan is short of almost 50 GB to compete with Google Drive.

Google is rolling out new changes to its storage plans that include a new, low-cost storage plan and half off the price of its 2TB storage option, the company announced today. It’s also converting all Google Drive paid storage plans to Google One, perhaps in part because you’ll now have one-tap access to Google’s live customer service.

Google One will get a new $2.99 a month option that gets you 200GB of storage. The 2TB plan, which usually costs $19.99 per month, will now cost $9.99 a month. Finally, the 1TB plan that costs $9.99 a month is getting removed. The other plans for 10, 20, or 30TB won’t see any changes.

Google will also make the plan shareable within a family of up to five members, and give users access to live chat support even if you’re on the cheapest plan of $1.99 a month for 100GB. It’s the first time live support is coming to Google for users who may not have a G Suite business account.

If you want to use Google One without paying at all, the company will still offer Drive’s basic 15GB of free space option. The upgrade will arrive first to users who already pay for additional Google Drive storage, and you can expect to see an email confirming the change shortly.

Google pushes artificial intelligence for upgraded news app .
For its updated news application, Google is doubling down on the use of artificial intelligence as part of an effort to weed our disinformation and help users get viewpoints beyond their own "filter bubble." Google chief Sundar Pichai, who unveiled the updated Google News earlier this month, said the app now "surfaces the news you care about from trusted sources while still giving you a full range of perspectives on events.
