This morning, Google announced that its popular music streaming service Google Play Music will finally get family plans for as low as $14.99 per month. If you’ve created a Google Account for your kid who is under 13, they can use your family music plan if they have the Google Play Music app installed. Apple Music: For $14.99 a month, you and up to five people can share an Apple Music plan. Thought I was in the clear with the new Family Plan but now my family of 4 is still stuck and there’s been zero peeps from Google on adding this anytime soon.
The sharing allows members to listen across Nexus devices without interrupting anyone’s listening experience. The simple solution would be to bring out a Google Apps for Families with a similar pricing model to Music for Families ($20~/month/6 users) and let these accounts be used with consumer programs like Music (and lower the 13yr old age restriction).
Mr. Music worked as a truck driver for a local construction company, Pham said. I’m pretty sure others have reported Apps accounts can’t be invited to a family either. Your family group on Google Play won’t get deleted, and family members can continue sharing eligible purchases using Family Library.
The real problem with this Play Music decision is with the definition of family. I sure hope this family music account gets opened up for us. please let us know your plans, google. In the next step, select whether you want them to enter a password or send an invitation to activate Family Sharing on their device.
It’s worth noting that Apps become part of Family Sharing only with developer support. Instead of the $9.99/monthly fee you need to pay for the Google Play Music individual subscription, the $14.99 is quite attractive. I don’t use SoundCloud but I’m hoping by purchasing SoundCloud that would give Spotify the infrastructure to add the feature of uploading one’s already owned music.
