How to Share a Google One Subscription With Your Family

how to share a google one subscription with your family

Google One is a subscription service that includes a few additional benefits beyond a Google Drive subscription—some of the larger Google One plans actually come with access to Gemini Advanced, the most cutting-edge version of Google’s AI model. And unlike a regular Google Drive subscription, you can share a Google One subscription with your family members, giving everyone in the household access to a large pool of cloud storage, plus a few other perks.

To do so, the first step is setting up a Google Family.

How to set up a Google Family

The first step to sharing Google One with your family is to actually set up a family group within your Google account. To do that, head to one.google.com and then click Settings (the cog at the top right of the window). Now, select Manage Family settings > Manage > Create a family group and follow the rest of the prompts.

To invite members to your Google Family Group, select Manage family settings > Manage > Send new invitation and enter the email addresses of the users you want to invite.

How to share Google One with your family group

Now that you have a family group set up, it’s time to start sharing your benefits with the rest of the family. Once again, at one.google.com, click the settings cog at the top of the screen, and then select Manage Family Settings. You should now see a Share Google One with family option with a toggle next to it. Select the toggle to turn it on (the switch will be to the right when it is turned on). This will share Google One with your family.

Keep in mind that your family will still have their own “individual storage.” However, once their individual storage is filled, they’ll start taking advantage of the “family storage” that you’ve unlocked with both the Family Group and your Google One subscription.

Can you share Gemini AI access with your Family Group?

While many of the benefits of Google One are shared with your family, access to Gemini Advanced is not one of those shared benefits. So, if you have one of the AI plans that Google One now offers, you won’t be able to share Gemini Advanced access with your family; they’ll still need to subscribe themselves to get full access to Google’s best AI language model.

So, what exactly is shared with your family when you share Google One? Google says it will share benefits like extra Google Photos editing features, access to Google experts through tech support, storage, and premium video calling features. Depending on your Google One plan, you may also be able to monitor the dark web for your private information.
