A paid Google One membership starts from Rs 130 per month for 100GB in India. The annual membership costs Rs 1,300, while Google also offers other plans, going all the way up to 30TB of cloud storage for Rs 9,750 per month. Canon’s app also supports backup to YouTube and Google Drive, while the latest version of the app adds Google Photos to the list.Source
