Google Play Family Library was first unveiled back in May 2016 and was expected to start rolling out a few weeks ago, however Google has today finally started making the service available to allow family members and groups to share movies, applications and more with up to 6 people.
The new Google Play Family Library service is now available to users in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, and Mexico.
Google explains a little more about the new service which is now available across multiple devices :
Today’s families have a lot of devices, and it should be easy to share content no matter where we are or what we’re doing. Everyone in my family loves the Star Wars movies and we all want to be able to watch them, on our phones, tablets, laptops, or TV. All purchases added to Family Library are available across Android devices, and movies, TV shows, and books can be enjoyed on iOS devices and the web.
As with most family matters, flexibility and choice is important. With Family Library, you can choose which items you want to share and which to keep to yourself—for example, I’ll probably keep my collection of comic books in my personal library. Flexibility is also built into your purchasing options. When you sign up, you’ll select a credit card to share as your family payment method, but your family members will always have the option of buying stuff with their personal credit cards or gift cards. And for your younger family members, you’ll have the option to approve each of their purchases.
Last year Google also released its Google Play Music family plan which is priced at $14.99 per month and offers subscribers unlimited music streaming for up to 6 family members.
