Google launches ‘Google Play Family Library’ for apps, movies, books, and TV

In a recently-published blog post, Google has announced that it is launching a new Family Sharing feature for Google Play apps, movies, TV shows, and books. The feature is called the 'Google Play Family Library.'

The Google Play Family Library is a 'free' Family Sharing plan which enables up to six family members to share media purchased through the Google Play store for mobile devices, PCs and Macs and connected TVs.

According to the details shared by Google, the Google Play Family Library works with up to six different accounts, allowing the users to share movies, TV shows, books, and apps across different devices. Any of the six family members using the plan can pay for Google Play content with the help of the credit card of the main account.

Revealing that the rollout of the Google Play Family Library has been commenced in the US, Google said that the feature will be available in a number of countries including the UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Mexico, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, and Japan.

About Google's move to rollout the Google Play Family Library, Raj Iyengar -- Product Manager of Google Play -- said in the blog post: "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."
