Google Search

Google has been synonymous with free ever since it came into the picture. From email to search, maps to YouTube, Google’s services have become a very important part of our digital lives, especially Google search. It has now become almost impossible to imagine the internet without a Google search.

Is Google planning something bigger to shake the entire digital livelihood? Do we have to pay every time we want to search for something? However, Google has not officially announced anything related to this news. But, rumours are saying that Google is planning for paid service. No more free Google search? Let’s discuss more about this in brief.

Google’s developers are working on a project in which they will make Google services paid. These new set of features will charge users to get access to their services.

Google charges for upgraded versions of its services for better user experience. For instance, YouTube charges you for a premium subscription to remove ads and Drive charges you for more storage space. But Google has never charged for access.

Google make more than 50% of its total Google Sales through search engines. Last year, Google generated $175B through its ads. Then why is Google going to charge for it? Here comes Google’s AI chatbot, Gemini. The company is planning to add its AI services to other services and that’s why they are gonna charge users for it.

The traditional Google services will remain free and it will be funded by Ads. However, if you want to use AI for quick results, you might have to pay for it. Gemini is most likely to get added to all Google Services which will take time and Google will have to spend a lot of money on it.

Google is gonna get advantages from these features, like scaling up quickly, recovering the cost of investment and keeping its profit margins intact.

Let’s see how this strategy will work out for Google in the future and how will this affect the company and the users. Keep in mind that it is not confirmed yet. Let’s wait for the official announcement, till then we will keep you informed with new updates.
