Google has several services that could easily be lumped together as a single subscription, similar to Apple One. At present, Google users have to subscribe to some services individually. Apple users, however, can pay for a single subscription to get a number of services. The latter’s bundle includes Apple TV Plus, Apple Music, Apple Arcade, and 50GB of iCloud storage at its base price. While it might work for Apple, would you pay for something similar if Google offered it?
In a recent poll, we asked you this question. Here’s how you responded.
How much would you pay for a Google take on Apple One?
Apple One starts at $14.95, and that’s unsurprisingly what most readers would be willing to pay for a similar service from Google. More than 60% of respondents see a price between $10 and $15 as the sweet spot for a service that includes YouTube Music, 100GB of Google Drive storage, Google Play Pass, and YouTube Premium. Only 16.5% of readers would be willing to drop between $1 and $4 more for that bundle.
Interestingly, the next most popular option was “$40 or more.” We’re aren’t completely sure if these respondents read the context of our poll, but it’s interesting to note that nearly 8% of readers would drop this amount on Google’s cheapest Apple One competitor.
According to the comments, we may have left out an option. A few readers aren’t willing to pay a cent for Google’s bouquet. Peruse some more reader anecdotes below.
Here’s what you told us
- naduh: Where is the option for $0? Personally, I don’t think Google’s products are good enough to come out of pocket for. Plus why would I spend money on a product Google would kill off after a year or two.
- Johnny Ravioli: $0.
- Rick45TX: If one could trust that Google wouldn’t snoop around in the associated storage and not track what one used for the services, I might consider it. But since it *is* Google, there’s no way I’d pay.
- Guy_Jorgen_Gold: The cost of all of these services combined is about 20$, so obviously less.
- EasyCare: Will this ever happen? Many Google services come and go. Even if they are present, they are siloed and doesn’t work well with each other.
- sachouba: Why would I be willing to pay for any of that? The only service worth paying for is Google Drive. If all of the other services come for free with a Google Drive subscription, why not, but otherwise, I’ll just stick to Spotify and YouTube Vanced.
