Google Play Launches Family Library

At long last you can bring up to six different individuals together into a single happy Google Play Family.

Google officially debuted its new Family Library on Wednesday, bringing Android up to speed with Apple’s Family Sharing, which has been a longstanding perk of iOS. When you sign up, you’ll be able to select a credit card to share as the family payment method. However, other family members will be able to designate a different payment option or use a gift card instead for specific purchases.

You’ll be able to designate specific items to keep to yourself if you’d rather not share certain films or books with children. Google says there’s a “personal library” option to ensure no one else can download your personal content through the family account. And items that work outside of Android are supported as well, such as Google apps on Chromebooks, and Play Movies and Books that can be accessed on the web or through iOS apps.
