This is because this more or less locks the user in for the entire year, guaranteeing that the customer will be sticking around. The good news is that if you were looking for cloud storage and Google Drive was on your list, it just got more tempting.

As spotted by Android Police, it seems that Google has introduced the option of annual billing to Google Drive, the company’s cloud-based storage platform. Prior to this, monthly options were the only options available, where 100GB was priced at $1.99 a month and 1TB was priced at 1TB a month.

However with annual billing, customers can choose the 100GB option at $19.99 a year and save 16%, or 1TB at $99.99 a year and save themselves 17%. If you have been paying for Google Drive storage for a while now, then these savings should no doubt be welcome if you do decide to switch to the annual billing option.

The changes should already be rolling out now and if you’d like to change the way you are being billed, head on over to the Google Drive storage settings page to make those changes.
