Google announces Family Library to share apps, games and more with up to six family members

After months of waiting, Google has officially announced Family Library for its customers. Dubbed as "Google Play Family Library", the service will allow up to six members of a family to share eligible apps, games, movies, books and TV shows across devices with no sign-up fee.

Google states that flexibility and security is a focus for the company as well. While all the six family members will be able to share the main provider's payment account, they can utilize their own payment methods as well. Similarly, for younger family members, the provider will have the ability to approve each purchase. All purchases made via the Family Library will be available across Android and iOS devices, as well the web.

Apart from announcing the Google Play Family Library, the company also stated that it is rolling out Google Play Music family plan - a feature it rolled out last year - to new territories including Ireland, Italy, Mexico, and New Zealand. Additionally, Google will now allow users to sign up for the service via the web instead of an Android device.

Family Library will start rolling out to Google Play users in Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States over the next few days, and you can sign up for it right now - provided that it is available in your country.
