It seems that Google is all about family these days. Just yesterday they announced a family plan for Play Music but it seems that’s not all they had in mind. It has also been revealed that Google actually launched a family plan for the Google Play Store as well, in which users can purchase books, music, movies, and apps all under one account.
Basically the idea is that if you have a family or multiple Android users, you can put them all under one family account. Each user will have their own credentials, of course, but the purchases will all be made through a single payment method. This helps to better consolidate all the purchases made.
However the main account holder will be able to see the various purchases that have been made, so if you are planning on going on a spending spree with in-app purchases, note that every purchase you make will be noticed by the main account holder. The items that Google claims can be shared under the plan includes apps, books, movies, games, TV shows, and magazine issues.
All users need is to be over 18 (to be the main account holder), a valid credit card, and live in one of the countries where this plan is available in. Users who wish to be part of the network needs to be 13 years and older and live in the same country as the family member. The max number of users per family group is set at six. For more information, head on over to Google’s website for the details.
