Google One Now Provides Enhanced Video Calling

Posted on July 11, 2022 by Paul Thurrott in Cloud, Google with 1 Comment

Google One subscriptions now provide a premium Workspace capability that was previously available only to paid business customers.

“When we launched Google One a little over four years ago, our goal was to create a membership to help you get the most out of Google, starting with more storage and expert support,” Google director Esteban Kozak explains. “Over the years, we’ve introduced new ways to get more value from your membership, like a VPN for added security, advanced Google Photos editing tools, and Google Store rewards. Today, we’re bringing an even more premium experience to Google One members.”

The first of these experiences coming to Google One is enhanced video calling. You can chat with your people using Google Meet in Google Workspace for up to 24 hours, filter out background noises like barking dogs and construction, and securely record and store calls to Google Drive.

Enhanced video calling is rolling out today for Google One members on Premium 2 TB and above plans in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Japan, and Australia, and Google says that more countries are coming soon.

Additionally, Google One members will gain access to additional select premium features from Google Workspace across Google Meet, Gmail, Calendar, and other Google products over time.

    Hopefully this means custom domain email support will come to Google One as well, it’s already in iCloud.
