Google One is a separate plan with which you get more storage across Google's services which are Google Drive, Gmail, and also original quality images in Google Photos. You can choose how much storage you want from a list of options, and you can upgrade at any time. 

 

Every new account on Google Drive gets 15GB of storage as default. To buy more storage, you will need to subscribe to Google One.

After joining Google One, members can receive benefits redeemable in places like Google Play and the Google Store. For example, a few days back we  got Rs 300 as Google Play Store Credit to spend on apps and in-app purchases.
