GOOGLE is letting you back your iPhone or Android smartphone up free of charge.
And you can bag a decent 15GB of storage without paying a penny.
Google One launched back in 2018 as a paid membership for backing up your phone with boosted storage – as well as some other perks.
It included automatic phone backup for Android devices, as a fail-safe for losing or replacing your phone.
And now Google is expanding this part of the Google One membership to all Android and iPhone users free of charge.
Automatic phone back-up will be available directly on Android phones, even without a Google One membership.
And if you're using an iPhone, you'll need to download the Google One app specifically.
That will let you store photos, videos, contacts and calendar events on Google's systems.
Simply having a Google account is enough to earn the 15GB storage capacity reward.
And you'll keep your storage (and be able to access your back-ups) if you lose, break or upgrade your smartphone.
There's also a new storage manager feature being built into the Google One app, as well as on the web.
That'll quickly reveal how you're using your Google cloud storage, and let you free up space.
It's also possible to upgrade your storage from the Google One app.
Prices start from $1.99/£1.99 a month, and you can share your plan with up to five family members.
