Earlier this week, Google launched a new Google Play Music family subscription. The plan lets a family with up to six members share a Play Music subscription for 14.99 a month. Well, it looks like Google is rolling out another family friendly feature this week.
Earlier today, a new page appeared on the Google Play help website in which the company details a new family group and payment system that has been added to its app and entertainment marketplace. According to the page, Google account holders can now set up an account they can invite other people in their family to join. Using this account, multiple individuals can use the same pre-authorized payment method to purchase apps and media content like music, movies and books.
By default, the system does not allow those in the group to buy in-app purchases. Family members also can’t make purchases on the Google Store using this method. Instructions how to set up a family account can be found here.
