Google Launches Google Play Family Library


Following the launch of Google Play Music Family Plan late last year, Google is back once again with some pretty exciting news for family members and has announced Google Play Family Library, offering them the ability to share purchases on Google Play.

Google Play Family Library features:

  • Eligible app, game, movie, TV show, or book in the Play Store will be shared with up to six family members across devices with no additional sign-up fee
  • 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
  • The ability to choose which items you want to share and which to keep to yourself
  • Select a credit card to share as your family payment method. Although, family members will also be given the option of buying stuff with their personal credit cards or gift cards
  • The option to approve purchases for younger family members
Google Play Family Library is now rolling out in Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States.
