Google will give you up to 1 TB of free Drive storage if you give reviews of your favorite places on its Local Guides.

Google Drive


Local Guides is a worldwide group that offers you some assistance with exploring the world while getting your own perks. When you join, each spot you add to in Google Maps wins you points towards opening something new—from ahead of schedule access to new google products to selective competitions and occasions, free storage device and many things more.

You can gain more points and level up by writing reviews, transferring photographs, including new places, altering old data, and noting basic questions. Each thing you contribute is worth one point, so you can procure up to five points per place.

This is what you will unlock at each level:

  • Level 1 (0 – 4 points): Enter exclusive contests (think new Google devices!) in select countries.

  • Level 2 (5 – 49 points): Get early access to new Google products and features.

  • Level 3 (50 – 199 points): Show up in the Google Maps app with your official Local Guides badge.

  • Level 4 (200 – 499 points): Receive a free 1 TB upgrade of your Drive storage, allowing you to keep all the stories, photos, and videos from your travels in one safe place.

  • Level 5 (500+ points): The very top Local Guides will become eligible to apply to attend our inaugural summit in 2016, where you’ll be able to meet other top Guides from around the world, explore the Google campus, and get the latest info about Google Maps. Look out for details early next year.
