…we’re introducing Family Library, a way for up to six family members to share purchases on Google Play. When you buy an eligible app, game, movie, TV show, or book in the Play Store, you can now share it with your family—across devices—with no additional sign-up fee...
Netflix does it. Apple music does it. Google Play Music does it. And now Google extends sharing purchases with family members beyond music.
That’s a good thing and probably can be seen as table stakes in the online media rental and purchase marketplace. As a father, I’ve taken advantage of family sharing for several years. It has proven a good way for both Apple and Google to get my family members hooked on their services, so that when they leave home they set up their own accounts.
If you haven’t got family sharing yet, you should see it in the next few days.
