The Google One app lets you back up your phone and manage your Google account storage.
• Back up the important things on your phone, like photos, contacts and messages using the free 15 GB of storage that comes with a Google account. If you break, lose or upgrade your phone, you can have the peace of mind of knowing the stuff you care about is safe on the cloud.
• See your storage across Google Drive, Gmail, Google Photos, and easily free up space within the app with the storage manager.
Upgrade to a Google One membership to get even more:
• Get as much storage as you need for your memories, projects and digital files. Choose the plan that works best for you.
• Get exclusive access to Google experts for help with all of Google’s products and services. If you have a question or need assistance, our team of Google experts is just a tap away.
• Share your storage with up to 5 additional people. This gives each person access to more storage from your plan, but not access to each other’s files.

Ratings and Reviews
Account management basically done for you.
I could see a lot of people thinking “What’s the point of Google one?” And if you’re not using your account to it’s fullest potential, that could be an understood question. For those, like myself, that have a ton of incoming emails, personal and work accounts, tons of files, etc etc - Google one is amazing! It basically does the account management side of things for you. I can delete all spam, all trashed files, or any other space takers with a click - and One already has that information ready in a visual way that’s easy to understand. You also get support and other great features that are easily accessible. Apples’s customer service is always ranked high, and it seems that Google has decided to put an effort into having a competitive edge with those rankings by simplifying processes across their many available resources - similar to how I have always thought Apple products have been. Very happy with G1 and cannot wait to see what is coming!
Saved me from having to purchase more storage so i am good…
I already pay for iCloud storage so i didn’t want to have to pay for google storage as well so i am glad they offered a way i could manage my storage. Most of my storage is being hogged by emails i NEVER read and it’s going to take me FOREVER to go through them and delete them but downloading this and spending about 30 mins or so deleting and unsubscribing to things as well as marking things as spam has freed up 1GB of space which is a lot for me! I still have a boat load of emails to get through because my gmail account gets a lot of spam for varying reasons.
Confused about backups
I’ve already got my iPhone syncing with my Google account for contacts and calendar. And I’m already using the Google Photos app to backup & sync my photos. So I have no idea what would happen if I also turned on backup for these items in the Google One app. Would it just make another backup wasting unnecessary storage? Or would it do nothing since I’m already syncing my Google account? The app needs to explain this!
I did try support chat to clarify, but the rep didn’t seem very knowledgeable, he just said it does a backup, but didn’t say how or if it is smart if you already are using Google photos or are already syncing your Google contacts and calendar (which makes me think it’s redundant for me).
In other respects (aside from backups), this app seems like it could be very useful for managing my Google storage space.
