Google's Family Library Lets You Share Your Apps, Games And Movies For Free

You can now share your Google Play apps, games, movies, TV shows, or books with up to six family members for no additional cost, thanks to the new Family Library service.

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. It won't automatically share everything, though -- you can choose which items you want to share and which to keep to yourself.

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.

There's also a Google Play Music family plan, which also included up to six family members for $14.99 a month. Google launched the family plan late last year, and today it is expanding to Ireland, Italy, Mexico, and New Zealand.

Starting today, Family Library will be rolling out over the next few days and will be available in Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States.
