The search giant hasn't quite yet revealed the exact, official release date, and currently you can only register to receive news about the service on the website (one.google.com). However, Google does promise it in the coming months for the folks that already pay for Google Drive's storage.
At first Google One will be available in limited quantity which probably means that free tier Google Drive users will be stuck with the old service for a while.
If you've been thinking of getting some more cloud storage, though, you'll be happy to hear that Google One offer better deals than its predecessor. 100 GB package costs the same $1.99 but you now have a 200 GB and $2.99 option. The $9.99 tier has also been updated to hold twice as much stuff at 2 TB. Tiers above 2TB will stay the same price.
There's no news whether Google will kill Drive and when this would happen, but you'll probably be able to use it at least until Google One is available for all.
