Microsoft is introducing some interesting changes to the OneDrive pricing and storage plans. It’s expanding storage options for OneDrive customers to give them more control over their cloud storage.
OneDrive is doubling the amount of storage available with the standard OneDrive plan. The $1.99 a month plan previously offered 50GB of storage, and it now comes with 100GB of storage. If you are a customer of the standard plan, you will automatically get the additional 50GB of storage for free.
And for Office 365 customers, Microsoft is changing up how it offers storage to those with Office 365. Along with the 1TB of storage that comes with an Office 365 subscription, users can now get an additional 1TB (so 2TB total) for $9.99 a month. You can add storage in 200GB increments to your account, starting at $1.99 a month for the first 200GB of additional storage. Here’s the breakdown:
Microsoft plans to introduce the new additional storage plans for Office 365 in the coming months. The changes should be welcome for many, but may still be considered slightly expensive considering the fact that other services like Dropbox, iCloud, and Google Drive offer similar 2TB storage plans at cheaper prices — and without having to pay for Office 365.
