@Dezponia:matrix.orgDezponiaFor some reason its really interesting to me that Google chose to allow sharing your "Google One" subscription with 5 other people (so 6 total, including yourself) as long as they're in the same country. Most services like Microsoft 365 or pretty much anything else (even Googles own Youtube Family sub) has the limitation that you need to be in the same household (aka living at the same address).23:04:34
@Dezponia:matrix.orgDezponiaKinda refreshing in a way.23:06:48

@Dezponia:matrix.orgDezponiaAnother interesting difference for the shared storage part is how its divided. For Microsoft 365 Family thing the OneDrive storage is divided evenly among the accounts,s o everyone gets 1TB if you get the 1TB tier and no one user can use the full 5TB or whatever, for example. Google instead pools the storage so everyone has access to the full amount. But since its shared a single user can technically use all of it, or at least the majority.23:14:54
@Dezponia:matrix.orgDezponiaI kinda prefer the flexibility of the Google model for the storage, since presumably you're pretty close with the people you share your subscription storage with and can just tell them "hey, be fair and don't hog all of it silly". I certainly appreciate the removal of the "household" limitation since that makes no sense for the services included in Google One. With "media services" like video/music streaming some lawyer could argue something about "broadcasting licencing bla bla number of people commercial bla bla" whatever baloney, but that doesn't apply to stuff like Googles own services in Google One.23:15:06

Some benefits of the Google One model for my situation:

  1. I'm kinda the de-facto "tech" person in the family, so its usually great if I can help manage stuff for the others.
  2. Turns out a lot of adult family members no longer live in the same household... who knew! So being able to share the subscription with others like mom and dad even though we're not in the same household is very efficient.
  3. Even though I'm no friend of Google and don't use it myself, it doesn't change the fact that Google is the "ecosystem of choice" for most of my family. That doesn't mean I can't benefit from the Google One subscription as well though. Specifically I can use Rclone (or whatever app you prefer) to sync a client-side-encrypted backup of my most important stuff to the shared Google Drive storage pool since my families data and backups doesn't use anywhere near the full capacity.

  3. Even though I'm no friend of Google and don't use it myself, it doesn't change the fact that Google is the "ecosystem of choice" for most of my family. The fact that most of them are already familiar with how to use Gmail, Calendar, Contacts, and most importantly Drive (since cloud storage seems the most arcane for "regular people" to understand) is a massive bonus. Having a Nextcloud instance or something is meaningless if they won't use it.
  4. Me not being a Google fan doesn't mean I can't benefit from the Google One subscription as well though. Specifically I can use Rclone (or whatever app you prefer) to sync a client-side-encrypted backup of my most important stuff to the shared Google Drive storage pool since my families data, computer, and android device backups doesn't use anywhere near the full capacity.

@Dezponia:matrix.orgDezponiaAlso in case its unclear, each person can only see stuff from their own account. The files themselves are not shared unless the person chooses to setup something like a shared directory etc. :)00:07:05

I wonder what happens if you have one device being used in the house and one in the log cabin in the garden ?
