Google is offering free smartphone backup via Google One

Google One allows you to share a single account with five different people, so if you are unable to use the 100GB storage space alone, you can share your account with family members. With the new app, automatic phone backups will be available on iPhones and Android devices for free.

And it is that, according to a report by Bloomberg, Google and Samsung are negotiating to make the services of the former more important on the mobile phones of the seconds. A new Google One application rolling out soon will provide the capability, and now the backups will be free of charge even if you never subscribe to Google's support.

Want to see how you are using your storage allotment?

The automatic phone backup feature was rolled out to Google One subscribers on Android in September past year. This is possible because of the Google Play Service's backup manager service which helps you to upload files on the Google drive of the user. This will give iOS users an additional 15GB of data and more flexibility to store their smartphone's backup. Google's got you covered.

Google and Samsung are in discussions for a deal that would give the U.S. tech giant's services more prominence on Samsung phones at the expense of those from the Korean manufacturer, according to a report by Bloomberg.

With Google One, you will certainly manage to maintain a duplicate of all necessary information on your tools, that include video recordings, photographes and also calls, information, schedule activities, and also various other application information. (Google One lets you store more than just your Google files, however.) It's also where all your phone's data backed up. Google's Android is already the underlying operating system on Galaxy devices, but a potential deal would promote Google's digital assistant and Play Store for apps on those devices, details from a person briefed on the matter show. The extension of new features is only for consumer accounts, and not G Suite business users, Google said in a blog post.
