Monthly subscriptions are the preferred payment method for a wide range of premium online services, but it is very annoying to have many different monthly subscriptions, especially when you use multiple services from one company, such as: Google, Apple, or Amazon.
However, this may change for the better, especially for users of Apple’s services, as a new report has appeared stating that Apple is preparing to launch One subscription service (Apple One) is called Apple One that allows users to pay all their subscriptions to its various services in one monthly payment.
In a similar way to Google, which has its own one payment group for many of its various services, which raises the following question: Can Google compete with AppleOne? What are the main differences between them and how much will they cost?
Here’s everything you need to know about the Apple One unified subscription payment service and how it differs from the Google model?
What is Apple One and how does it work?
The Apple One payment method aims to group services together while imposing a lower monthly cost than if the services were subscribed individually, as the user could end up paying a cheaper subscription through Apple One at a value that could reach $ 5 per month depending on The package.
Reports indicate that the packages will be aimed at families, allowing up to six people to use each service in the package, and there will be different levels, so that the basic package includes (Apple Music) and (Apple TV +), while the second package includes ( Apple Music), (Apple TV +), and (Apple Arcade) game service.
While the third package includes (Apple Music), (Apple TV +), (Apple Arcade) and (Apple News +), the more expensive package includes all the previous services, in addition to additional storage space in (iCloud) for files and photos.
In total, the current subscription to all of these services will pay $ 45 per month for the family plan, and it may drop to $ 40, and then (Apple One) will be an ideal subscription model for users who use Apple services and its various devices.
What does Google’s All-In-One subscription model look like?
Although there is no idea of a similar service from Google, the company already has a surprisingly similar set of subscription options unlike Apple, and YouTube is the clear equivalent of Apple’s video and music services.
YouTube Premium brings together YouTube Music Premium, YouTube Originals content, and a comprehensive ad-free YouTube experience for $ 11.99 or $ 17.99 for a family of five; instead, YouTube Music alone costs $ 9.99 or $ 14.99 for a family package.
There is also a YouTube TV service with live channels across televisions, phones, media players, and more for it $ 64.99Adding the service may make Google’s option a bit more comprehensive, but it will undoubtedly come at a much higher price than anything Apple charges.
Meanwhile, Google One’s cloud storage prices range from $ 1.59 to $ 8 per month, and that covers email, documents, and photos at a slightly cheaper price than iCloud.
In the field of games, Google has Google Play Pass with a subscription of $ 4.99 for games and applications that are completely free of ads and in-app purchases, combined, Google’s premium package can cost between $ 35 and $ 41 for a family plan and if you use YouTube TV it may cost Up to $ 106 per month.
But the problem with Google is that it does not offer a subscription to TV broadcasts and movies – such as Apple TV Plus – and they are considered one of the most important services that everyone is looking for to subscribe to them, and although Google already owns YouTube Premium and YouTube TV, they do not compete with popular services such as: Netflix or Prime Video and so is Apple TV.
